Biographical Information[edit]

Don Miles, signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1956, had his entire major league career at the age of 22 in 1958, when he appeared in 8 games after the team had become the Los Angeles Dodgers. Although he hit only .182, his range in the outfield was excellent.

The 1958 Dodgers used many players in left field, of which the most-used was super-sub Jim Gilliam, who normally was an infielder.

He was a star with the Kokomo Dodgers of the Midwest League in 1956, hitting .312 with 23 HR and 86 RBI.

He died in 2011, though news of his death was not uncovered by researchers until 2015.
