John Miller

Jesse Price


1913-1917, 1919-1921

In Miller’s rookie season he played with Honus Wagner. The story goes Wagner was approached by an opposing player or a reporter or a fan in the stands who pointed to Miller and asked, “Who’s that?” or “Who’s the new kid?” or “Whose playing second?”, Wagner replied “That’s Miller.” But, from Wagner’s German accent whoever it was, and what ever question they asked, heard “Dots Miller”.

He died in 1923 from TB. In 1948 he received his single vote for inclusion into the 1948 Baseball Hall of Fame
