In his only MLB at-bat on April 29, 1956, against the Cincinnati Redlegs at Crosley Field, Myers pinch hit for Cub pitcher Vito Valentinetti and grounded out to shortstop Roy McMillan against Cincinnati starting pitcher Art Fowler. As a pinch runner, he appeared in three other games but failed to score a run.
His 1948–1956 minor league career largely took place with his hometown Sacramento Solons of the Pacific Coast League, where he spent all or part of seven of his nine professional seasons. Myers posted a .261 batting average with 45 home runs in 937 games and a .964 fielding percentage at shortstop.
Following his retirement, Myers worked for the city of Sacramento as a street maintenance supervisor. In 2006 Myers moved to Yreka, California, where he died at the age of 81 following complications from a fall.
