(Top to bottom) Andy Cohen, Chuck Dressen, Foster “Babe” Ganzel, Spencer Harris HR Bat, Spencer Harris, Ernie Smith, Paul Richards, A.B. Wright.

The 1932 team is considered one of the best Millers teams ever put together. Finishing third in franchise history with 100 wins, behind 1910 Millers (107 wins) and 1912 Millers (105 wins), this Millers team featured multiple major leaguers and PCL superstars such as Spencer Harris, Joe Hauser, Chuck Dressen, Art Ruble and Ad Liska. To this day, Spencer Harris remains the minor-league career leader in hits (3,617), runs (2,287), doubles (743) and at-bats (11,371). Joe Hauser became the first player to ever hit 60 or more home runs twice in a professional career and also held the professional baseball record for home runs in a single season (69) in 1933 with the Milles.

Champions of the American Association, the team finished in first place with a record of 100-68 and advanced to the very first Junior World Series (formerly the Little World Series), in which the Millers were defeated by the Newark Bears 4 games to 2. Art Ruble led the American Association with a batting average of .376, Joe Mowry led the Association with 175 runs, Joe Hauser led the association with 42 home runs, Babe Ganzel led the Association with 143 runs batted in, and Rosy Ryan tied for the Association lead with 22 wins. Over the years the Millers were participants in four Junior World Series; matchups between the American Association and the International League.
