RIP - Larry Miller

Former Mets' pitcher Larry Miller passed away on March 21, 2018 at age 80.

Miller pitched in the Dodgers' farm system from 1959 to 1964, and also with the Dodgers in 1964. He also played for the Mets in 1965 and 1966.

Miller's record shows he played for the Giants' AAA team from 1967-69, and was never in the Orioles' organization. Having not been in the majors since 1966, I'm not sure why Topps made a card for him in the 1969 set, least of all as an Oriole.

Miller was on the 40-man roster and in Spring Training with the Orioles: given the picture situation in 1969, Topps probably just jumped the gun and went with a player they had a usable picture for.
