Bob Miller

Robert Gerald Miller
Batted: Right
Threw: Left
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 185 lbs.
Born: July 15, 1935 in Berwyn, IL
Signed: 1953 by the Detroit Tigers
Acquired: traded from the Cincinnati Reds with
Cliff Cook for Don Zimmer, May 1962

 

In his four seasons with the Tigers in the 1950s, Bob twice had ERAs of under 2.50, and twice had ERAs of over 5.50! Six years later he came back to the majors for one last fling and gave up more than 10 runs per game. Hmm. He's pictured below on 1956 Topps; up here is one of the vintage treasures of my collection: 1955 Topps Double Header.
