Miller was born in New York City. He would play for the Brooklyn Robins, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs. The son of a wrestler and strongman, he wielded a 47-ounce bat and occasionally used a bat weighing 65 ounces. His nickname "Hack" was due to his resemblance to wrestler Georg Hackenschmidt.
On August 25, 1922, Miller hit two 3-run home runs to help the Cubs beat the Phillies, 26–23 in the highest scoring game in major league history.
In 349 games over 6 seasons, Miller hit .323 (387-for-1200), with 164 runs, 65 doubles, 11 triples, 38 home runs, 205 RBI, 64 walks, .361 on-base percentage and .490 slugging percentage. Defensively, he recorded a .962 fielding percentage as an outfielder.
