Miller batted .311 in 1,820 Major League games played with 1,934 hits over the course of his 16-year career, with 389 doubles, 96 triples and 116 home runs. He's best known for hitting a two-outwalk-off double in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 5 of the 1929 World Series, in which the Athletics won their fourth world championship. Miller was the A's starting right fielder during their three consecutive American League championships, and batted .258 with 17 hits in 18 World Series games from 1929–31. He retired as a player six days after his 42nd birthday.
Miller then continued in uniform as a coach for 17 years after his playing career ended, working with the Red Sox (1937), Detroit Tigers (1938–41), Chicago White Sox (1942–49) and Athletics (1950–53).
On May 7, 1966, he was injured in an auto accident while driving home after attending Connie Mack Stadium for a game between the Phillies and Pirates. Taken to Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, Bing Miller died six hours after the accident.
