#382 Keith Miller

Why this card is awesome: Because he was voted "top base runner"...when that's the most impressive fact on your card, you haven't done much yet.

Also, help me out here--what team is in the background? Are those powder-blue Phillies road jerseys? I can't tell.

Cool stat: Miller is one of a handful of players to have exactly 1 homer in a season at least 4 times between 1988 and 1995. Pitchers Andy Benes, Omar Oliveras, and Dwight Gooden make that list too! Miller is not to be confused with another player with the same name who played at the same time.

Weird that Miller had zero steals in five attempts in '88 and six steals in six attempts in '89. Quite the turnaround.

I'd say it's the ST. Louis Cardinals in the background.
