William Paul Miller (July 26, 1927 – July 1, 2003) was an American pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1952 through 1955 for the New York Yankees (1952–1954) and Baltimore Orioles (1955). Listed at 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m), 175 lb., Miller batted and threw left-handed. He was born in Minersville, Pennsylvania.
In a four-season career, Miller posted a 6–9 record with 158 strikeouts and a 4.24 ERA in 41 appearances, including 18 starts, five complete games, two shutouts, one save, and 131⅔ innings of work. He was a member of the Yankees teams that won the World Series in 1952 and 1953, though he did not pitch during the postseason. After the 1954 season, Miller was part of one of the largest trades in Major League history, a 17-player swap between the Yankees and Orioles that also included Gene Woodling, Gus Triandos, Don Larsen and Bob Turley.
Miller died in Lititz, Pennsylvania, at age 75.
