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 accident in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
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".
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.
