Biographical Information[edit]

James "Hack" Miller was in the majors in 1944 and 1945 with the Detroit Tigers. Since the 1945 Tigers went on to win the World Series, he gets some credit for the championship although he only played two games for the team.

He is not to be confused with another player, Laurence "Hack" Miller, who played earlier in the majors.

This Hack Miller was at the University of North Texas and Southeastern Oklahoma State University from 1932 to 1936, and also played minor league ball in 1935 with Longview. After his college days he played more pro ball with Longview as well as Lubbock, Meridian and other teams, mostly in the South.

He also did some pitching, going 10-4 for Tyler in 1947 and 5-2 the following year for Tyler.

He also managed a number of minor league teams in Texas.
