The second one is correct. Ted Turner managed the Braves for one game before being forbidden the NL president of doing it again. What I have never found out though is what he did during that game if anything to provoke his banishment.

Great question (and answer) - I had forgotten all about that.

I think the reason was that there's a rule that nobody with a financial share (or however it's worded) in a team may manage, or something similar.
