Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Manager. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, he was known as "Mighty Mite", the powerhouse manager of the most famous team in baseball history, the 1927 New York Yankees, which included the famous Murderers' Row team of players. He started out as a player second baseman for the Cincinnati Reds in 1904 and was great at getting on base. His baseball career lasted for 13 years, with a record .400 on base percentage. In 1913, he went to player-manager status for the St. Louis Cardinals and came over to the New York Yankees in 1918. With the Yankees, Miller managed to assemble the greatest offense in baseball history, to included such legends as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Bob Muesel. Under his helm 1918 to 1929, the Yankees won six American League Pennants (1921-23 and 1926-28) and three World Series Championships (1923 and 1927-28). He ended his career with a 1413 win, 1134 loss record, ranking him as the 20th most successful manager of all time. In 1964, he was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and a monument was erected in his name in front of the flag pole at Yankee Stadium. He died at age 50 in New York City. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
