Bob Miller

Miller signed with Detroit for $60,000 in 1953, and debuted with the Tigers at age 17, but never had success with them. In 1962 he became the first Met to lose a game on his first pitch when he came on in the 12th inning of a 4-4 game and threw a screwball that the Braves Del Crandall crushed for a home run. He was one of two Bob Millers with the 1962 Mets; they roomed together on the road.
