Detailed Biography of Jon Miller
For the past four decades, Jon Miller has been one of the most recognizable voices in baseball. Although he has also served as a play by play announcer and color commentator on other sports, he is best known for his work with the Baltimore Orioles and the San Francisco Giants.
Miller’s career began in the early 1970s, and he broadcasted for the Baltimore Orioles from 1982 through 1996. Jon Miller’s current position as the play by play announcer with the San Francisco Giants began in 1997, and the venerable announcer had the unique opportunity of calling the final game to be played at Candlestick Park back in 1999. The National Baseball Hall of Fame awarded Miller the Ford C. Frick Award in 2010.
Because Jon Miller has a voice that has become so synonymous with baseball, it should be no surprise that Jon Miller appearances as a sportscaster have made their way into pop culture, including several movies and television shows. You can catch Jon Miller’s voice narrating some baseball action in an episode of “Cheers” as well as the movies “Summer Catch,” “My Neighbors the Yamadas” and “*61.” The name of Jon Miller also appears on a 1998 book co-authored by Mark S. Hyman. The book is called “Confessions of a Baseball Purist: What’s Right – and What’s Wrong – With Baseball, as Seen From the Best Seat in the House.” One Jon Miller endorsement came in the video game 2K Sports Major League Baseball as the play by play announcer.
