Seton Baseball Head Coach Jim Miller hangs up cleats

Tonight, One High School Baseball coach who has had a lot of success in the last few years is stepping down as head coach after 11 years with the program.

Seton Catholic Central's Jim Miller has put up his cleats for good and will leave the program in good hands.

During his time, Miller has won three Section Class 4 Titles in 2009, 2013, and another one this past season. All three of those teams advanced to the state semifinal with the 2013 team winning it all 9-0 against Geneseo 9-0 at SUNY Broome last June.

Now Miller was an assistant coach with the baseball team for 11 seasons prior to being the head coach and after the Hoosic Valley loss in the semifinal last month, we got a chance to speak to coach after the game and he was pleased with his time at Seton.

"Eleven years. First year we had nobody really. We developed some people, lost two people so we had to start the second year and the program has come a long way in eleven years. I think that's what I will remember. We also have a great coaching staff. We have been able to acquire some really good coaches in our system and I am pleased with that," said Jim Miller.

Miller now hopes that Binghamton High grad Mike Howell steps in as head coach. Howell played college ball at Cortland State and professionally with the Detroit Tigers organization.
