COVER: BILLY MARTIN

Photograph by Hy Peskin

The young man in the dark-blue baseball cap who looks out from this week's cover is Billy Martin, the New York Yankees' talented, hotly competitive—and endlessly controversial—infielder. Billy grew up in Berkeley, Calif., played second base for the Oakland Acorns and was the Yankee star of the 1953 World Series. For Paul O'Neil's tale of Martin's adventures, see page 34.
