If the one guy is Bob G. Miller, could the other guy be Bob L. Miller (shown below). Maybe the photographer was trying to show the Mets 2 Bob Miller(s)?

Not sure exactly; from their size, look like pitchers; one righty and one lefty. The one carrying his glove is the lefty. Having played a lot of baseball, I dont recall ever carrying my glove in my right hand and I was right handed. Hope that helps. That guy also looks very familiar; more so than the other.

Who ARE these Mets? They certainly aren't major leaguers, and they don't look like any of the dozen or so minor leaguers who were briefly in camp that spring of '62.

Any guesses? Remembering that these guys make Ray Daviault seem like a Hall of Famer.

The one on the right does look like Bob G. Miller. In fact, I did think that initially, but I was accepting Merkle's assessment that they were NOT major leaguers. The one on the left, IMO, looks nothing like Bob L. Miller. He doesn't even look like a ballplayer, really, although...you know...neither did most of the '62 Mets (on the field at least).

You know who the guy on the left looks like a little? Jay Hook. Hook was 6'2", righty. Miller was 6'1", lefty. Could be a match.

Mets

I agree that these guys might not have played for the mets, but they both look too familiar not to have played for someone especially the one on the right. His chin is uncommon and I am almost certain I have created a card for him. The other guy is less familiar but not unfamiliar either. Would be nice to solve this mystery. Btw, I checked out my sporting news baseball guide for 1962 looking at the pitchers who were with their minor league team. I was able to identify by name most of them, checked those from my card database and nothing. There were some names I never heard of and they could be these guys but still, they look so dang familiar LOL

I agree that one of the guys looks a little like Bob G. Miller - except that Bob G. Miller was never at spring training with the Mets. He was obtained from the Reds in late April, 1962, and was released at the end of the season. He was in camp with the Giants in '63, but that was it.

Mets Players

Okay so I still havent figured out who they are; that said, I think their names are likely on this expense report. There are players crossed out too which may be them as well.

Its for sale on ebay for $2500.00 along with team photo.

Request for Don Lock - Phillies

Don Lock was with the Phillies for several years. Sadly, all of Topps cards were head/no cap cards. There are these two chest up photos out there but was wondering if Merkle or anyone else had any gems? high resolution black and white would be welcomed also if they are from the knees up. Thanks in advance.

This is sort of cheating, but here's a "knees-up" Lock/Phillies.

I don't think so. I know every name on that list and, while a couple may vaguely resemble the guy on the left, that fellow on the right is very distinctive and there's no physical match to him on the expense report (not even among the crossouts). If he's not Bob Miller--and it would seem that he's not--then I'm back to the Ace Haggertys of the world.
