and his choice ended up being worth the effort. With the No. 46 pick, the Miami Marlins chose Miller, a right-given pitcher.
When his name was called, Miller's inclination spilled over. "I'm puzzled," Miller told MLB Network's Lauren Gardner.
"It's a little glimpse of heaven. Simply realizing that I have my family despite my good faith, the whole local area behind me,
I can't depict how I feel at this moment." Across his three years of secondary school baseball — one year removed by the COVID-19 pandemic,
Miller made 27 beginnings and struck out 382 players in 172 innings. In his senior year,
he drove the Lions to the state last four interestingly beginning around 1964 with a 9-1 record and 133 strikeouts in 57 innings.
