Players Association Hires Andrew Miller to New Special Assistant Role

The Major League Baseball Players Association today announced that former All-Star pitcher Andrew Miller has joined the organization in the new role of Special Assistant, Strategic Initiatives.

“Throughout his playing career, Andrew Miller was respected across the game for his commitment, his leadership and his ability to connect with his peers regardless of age, service time or position,” said MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark. “We expect his experience and range of skills to translate well to this new role as he brings his own unique perspective to the Players Association.”

Miller, 39, spent 16 seasons in the major leagues as a starter and reliever with the Tigers, Marlins, Red Sox, Orioles, Yankees, Indians and Cardinals. He was a two-time All-Star, Mariano Rivera Award winner and ALCS MVP, as well as a bullpen mainstay for Cleveland’s 2016 American League pennant club and Team USA’s 2017 World Baseball Classic championship squad.

As a player, Miller held active leadership roles with the MLBPA for more than a decade as an Elected Player Rep, Executive Subcommittee member, and Players Trust trustee. His voice and leadership were critical as players stood together through COVID and the 2021-2022 owner lockout.

Miller was born and raised in Gainesville, Fla., and spent three years at the University of North Carolina, where he was named Baseball America's College Player of the Year and the Roger Clemens Award winner as the nation’s top collegiate pitcher in 2006. After retiring as a player in 2021, he returned to Chapel Hill and received his MBA from UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in May.

Miller currently lives in Tampa, Fla., with his wife, Katie, and their children, Max and Hazel. In addition to his role with the union, he is active on various nonprofit boards, including the Boys and Girls Club Southeast, Learn Fresh, and UNC Friends of the Library.
