Jeremiah J. "Miah" Murray (January 1, 1865 – January 11, 1922) was an American catcher in Major League Baseball for four seasons, then umpired full-time for one season.[1] In his career, he played with four different teams: the Providence Grays in 1884, the Louisville Colonels in 1885), the Washington Nationals in 1888, and the Washington Senators in 1891.[1] His career totals include 34 games played, 120 at bats, and 17 hits for a .142 batting average.[1]

Later, he became a full-time umpire for the National League in 1895 when he officiated in 112 games.[1] He also is credited with umpiring one game in 1900, five games in 1905, and three games in 1910. He is also credited with seven ejections during the 1895 season.[1] Murray died at the age of 57 in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, and is interred at Holyhood Cemetery in Brookline, Massachusetts.[1]
