#82 EDDIE MILLER


FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#82 EDDIE MILLER
ATLANTA BRAVES 1978-1981

The Atlanta Braves speedy sometime lead-off hitter Eddie Miller hit .310 and stole 15 bases in 27 games for the 1979 team. Possibly his best game of that season was on September 6, 1979 against Don Sutton and the Dodgers where he had 3 hits and 3 stolen bases. I also remember one moment during a game at the Astrodome where after a headfirst slide into the plate, Eddie got chalk all over his body. Announcer Skip Caray added, "He looks like The Jazz Singer in reverse!"
