John McGraw was the original manager they loved to hate – arrogant, abrasive, and argumentative. Leo Durocher probably learned his bad boy ways from McGraw, who was his manager for his first two seasons in the bigs. McGraw brought a lot of aggravation to his players (they were often the target of opposing fans’ rocks and bottles), but also a lot of victories. His gruff style did not prevent his Giants from capturing 10 pennants and three championships. However, the umpires were not as forgiving as his players. During his 33-year managerial career McGraw was ejected from a whopping 131 games, or four per season. He set the single-season record in 1905, getting tossed 13 times.
