Background

Summary

Jay has had a distinguished career in his 32 years in professional baseball on both the major and minor league levels, is involved in a number of areas in the Rangers business operation, sponsorship sales and fan experience. He oversees Rangers Enterprises, which is responsible for revenue generation of non-game related events.
Miller spent the previous 12 years with Ryan-Sanders Baseball and its very successful operation in both Round Rock and Corpus Christi. Jay was hired by Nolan & Reid Ryan as VP and GM of the Double-A Round Rock Express of the Texas League in September 1998. In the inaugural 2000 season in Round Rock, the Express established a new Double-A home attendance record with over 660,000 fans and repeated that accomplishment over the next four years as well.
For the 2005 season, Ryan-Sanders Baseball moved its Texas League franchise to Corpus Christi and shifted the Triple-A Edmonton Trappers of the Pacific League Coast to Round Rock after purchasing that team. The Triple-A Express continued to thrive under the leadership of Miller, who was promoted to President and COO of Ryan-Sanders Baseball in October 2004.
Prior to joining the Ryans, Miller served as GM of the Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs from 1996-98. In 1987, he was the first GM of the Single-A Charlotte Rangers of the Florida State League and successfully coordinated Texas' move of its entire spring training operation to Port Charlotte. He began his pro baseball career in 1982 as the Assistant GM for the Eugene (Oregon) Emeralds in the Northwest League.
Miller has earned executive of the year honors multiple times at the Single-A, Double-A, and Triple-A levels. He was The Sporting News Minor League Executive of the Year in 2001 and 2003 and earned the same honor from Baseball America in 2005. He was inducted into the Florida State League Hall of Fame and he is a 1997 inductee to the Wheaton College Baseball Hall of Fame and entered the New Orleans Baseball Hall of Fame in January '11.
