Biographical Information[edit]

". . . when he has his fast one burning the edges of the plate there are few baseball clubs along the big league highway that have a chance against him." - New York Times, August 21, 1919, about Frank Miller

Bullet Frank Miller pitched seven seasons in the majors. He was twice in the top ten in the National League in ERA.

Miller was with the Chicago White Sox in 1913, and the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1916 to 1919. After he held out, the Pirates sold him to the Boston Braves, and he appeared with them in 1922 and 1923 at the ages of 36 and 37.

Prior to his time with the White Sox, Frank spent three years with the San Francisco Seals, winning 20 games each season. After his year with the White Sox, he spent two seasons with the Montreal Royals.

An article in the New York Times of March 13, 1921, says that the Boston Braves were asking him to return to baseball, but Miller, at that time living in Bravo, MI, said that he was through with baseball and would "stick to the farm".
