Corky Miller Night

2014 DATE | Sunday, August 31       GAME TIME | 6:05 pm       GATES OPEN | 5:00 pm

The Louisville Bats will honor the storied career of longtime Bats catcher Corky Miller in a pregame ceremony on Sunday, August 31 at Louisville Slugger Field. As part of the pregame ceremony, the Bats will give fans another opportunity to celebrate Miller's career when they retire his number 8 jersey. The pregame ceremony and number unveiling will begin at 5:40 pm.

Miller, a 10-year veteran of the Louisville Bats, has reached the Major Leagues with five different teams. However, fans in Louisville and Cincinnati will remember him for his longtime service to the City of Louisville and the Cincinnati Reds organization. His playing style, longevity and enthusiasm for the game have made him a fan favorite in the Derby City and worthy of being the only player in Louisville franchise history to have his number retired.

Throughout his career in Louisville, Miller has climbed the ranks of a number of franchise records. He sits atop the list of all-time games played (548) and doubles hit (99) while ranking among the top five in at-bats (1,703), home runs (50), hits (416) and RBI (236).
