Miller pitched for seven years in the majors, compiling a 23-17 record with a 3.23 ERA and 22 saves. A relief specialist, Miller made just one start in his career and pitched over 100 innings just once, in 1977, a year he split between the Baltimore Orioles and California Angels. He won six games that year as well, which was a career-high that he also matched in his rookie season (1975) for Baltimore and again in 1978 for the Angels. Miller pitched from 1975-1981 and played for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays in addition to California and Baltimore.

Miller worked for 28 years as a coach and instructor following his playing career.

On July 24, 1975 he surrendered a home run to Hank Aaron during a game in Baltimore. It was the 743rd home run of Aaron’s storied career.

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
