Michael Wilfred Miley (March 30, 1953 in Yazoo City, Mississippi – January 6, 1977) was a professional baseball player who played two seasons for the California Angels of Major League Baseball. He died in a one-car crash in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.[1]

Miley may have been better known for his football playing days at Louisiana State University. His heroics and leadership as the Tigers quarterback earned him the nickname, "Miracle Mike".[2]

He was California's No. 1 draft pick in 1974 and played in 70 games in 1975 and 14 in 1976. Miley quarterbacked the Louisiana State football team into the Orange Bowl as a junior in 1974 but left school to sign with the Angels later that year.
