House for Sale: A Look Inside the Port Crane Home of Yankees Legend Billy Martin [GALLERY]
If you ask a Yankees fan if they know the name Billy Martin, they’ll tell you they sure do. If you ask a Yankees fan from the Southern Tier, they might tell you they also knew Martin as the man who lived just down the road.
Billy Martin was the manager of the New York Yankees five times (yes, five different times). An article in the Daily News written in 1989 explained that Martin, “played on five World Series champions, and he was the MVP of the World Series once.” The article continues, “So they loved Billy Martin, no matter what. He was Casey’s boy. He got to room with DiMaggio. He was Mickey Mantle’s best friend, and he ran with Mickey and Whitey."
And now, nearly thirty-one years after his passing, Billy Martin’s Port Crane house is once again on the market with the opening bid starting at $500,000 plus a 10 percent buyers premium.
