During an American League playoff game with Detroit on 8 October 1972 a wild pitch by Lerrin LaGrow struck Campaneris on the ankle, and in anger he threw the bat at LaGrow. Manager Billy Martin charged out of the dugout at Campaneris, resulting in a melee and both Martin's and Campaneris expulsion from the game.
