Miller won 42 games in a 10-year career spent entirely with the Philadelphia Phillies from 1949-1958. Miller’s best season was his second year, when he made 21 starts, going 11-6 with one save for Philadelphia. He sported a 3.57 ERA and pitched seven complete games, including two shutouts, that year. He pitched in the World Series against the Yankees that season as well, starting one game, but lasting just 1/3 of an inning. Miller bounced between the majors and the minors in 1951 and 1952, but returned full-time to the Phillies in 1953. He was never able to find the success he enjoyed in 1950, however, and by 1959 he was out of the game.
Miller went on to become the head baseball coach at the University of Detroit Mercy. He won 896 games in a career that spanned from 1965-2000. He was elected to the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame in 1999.
