Miggins played in 43 big-league games for the St. Louis Cardinals during the 1948 and 1952 seasons. He appeared in just one contest in 1948, so the bulk of his action came during 1952. Miggins hit .229 that season with two home runs, 10 RBIs and seven runs scored. His professional baseball career actually stretched from 1944 until 1954. He missed the 1945 season to serve in the United States Merchant Navy during World War II.

Miggins first home run came on May 13, 1952 at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn when he took Preacher Roe deep in fourth inning. Miggins’ high school friend, Vin Scully, was calling the game for the Dodgers and thus fulfilled a dream the pair had discussed when they were in school of Scully announcing a Miggins’ home run.
