Miller has career highs in power numbers across the board

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 2, 2015

Anchorage’s Aaron Miller was good in high school, but he’s become an even better player in college.

The junior left fielder has put it all together for Mayville State University in North Dakota, where he has a .353 batting average in 119 career games with the NAIA school.

“In high school I was a good player but never had the consistency that I have achieved in college,” he told me. “I’ve worked a lot on my mental game to get to that next level in my game, which is why I believe I have had the success I’ve had recently.”

Miller is hardly a one-hit wonder. This guy has been tearing the cover off the ball since he arrived at Mayville State.

But this year has been extra special for the 5-foot-9, 185-pounder as he has career highs in his power numbers across the board – home runs [4], doubles [11], RBIs [37] and slugging percentage [.500].

“The home runs just started coming,” he said. “I’ve always had the power. It just now is starting to translate to games.”

Miller, of Service High fame, is batting .342 in 48 games this year and has hit safely in 23 of the last 25 games. 

“My swing feels great right now I’ve been able to spray the ball to whole field,” he said.
