Luke Miller Shines in Huntsville American League All-Star Debut

Huntsville American League
Luke Miller (7) made an impressive debut with the Huntsville American League All-Stars, going 9-for-11 in the first three games of pool play starring for the American Orange team in the Huntsville Coach Pitch All Star Tournament.

Over the course of the regular season Miller played all over the diamond, but likes the middle infield the best, often asking to take extra grounders after practice is over.

Miller comes from a long line of ball players. His great grandfather starred in the glory days of fast pitch softball in Tampa, Fl once leading the then Metro League in hitting. His grandfather, played through high school when his playing days were ended by a line drive to the face, eerily similar to what happened to Alex Cobb yesterday.

His own dad Donnie Miller and uncle Ryan Miller were both all-stars as well, so he has the lineage, and he has that intangible that cant be taught, according to his coaches he wants to be good.

“Luke constantly hustles and is one of the hardest workers on the team. He’s fearless and will only get better” said Coach Bender .

In game 3 action, Miller drove in the tying run in the top of the sixth inning and later scored the winning run and American Orange won 11-10. As it turned out the extra practice paid off as he tagged out the runner on a perfect throw from the left fielder to end the game.

The tournament continues through the week.
