RedHawks Broadcaster Scott Miller Passes Away

02/25/2016 8:38 AM -

Longtime Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks play-by-play broadcaster Scott Miller has passed away after a nearly four-year battle with cancer. Miller was 57 years old.

 

Miller became the “Voice of the RedHawks” in 2006 and his attention to detail, ability to meticulously call the game and his powerful, calm voice quickly established him as one of the top broadcasters in all of professional baseball. Miller called ten seasons of RedHawks baseball, including Northern League championships in 2006, 2009 and 2010. Miller’s signature call, “My Oh My,” became a fixture of his broadcasts and he was widely admired and respected by players, coaches and fans.

 

In honor of Miller, the Newman Outdoor Field press box will be dedicated as the Scott Miller Press Box by the RedHawks on Opening Night of the 2016 season.

 

“Scott was a gentleman and an immense talent in the radio booth,” said RedHawks Chairman of the Board Bruce Thom. “We are proud honor his memory and dedication to the RedHawks by naming the press box for him. He spent many hours there bringing baseball to our fans through the radio and it’s a fitting tribute to his legacy with our organization.”

 

“We were blessed to have Scott in our lives. He was the best broadcaster in independent baseball and an amazing representative of RedHawks Baseball,” said RedHawks President and CEO Brad Thom. “This community, the RedHawks and everyone who heard Scott call a game knew that they would have an unbiased view from his broadcasts.”

 

“It’s a huge loss for RedHawks fans and our organization,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic. “He was as professional as one could be in his approach to the job, and

 

“It was an honor to work with Scott for ten seasons with the RedHawks,” said RedHawks Vice President & General Manager Josh Buchholz. “He was a true professional in his approach to the job and a kind, loyal friend. He fought to the end and will be dearly missed by all our current and former players, staff and fans.”

 

Miller was a long-time sports broadcaster in Fargo-Moorhead and was also the play-by-play voice of the North Dakota State University Bison football and basketball teams. He was twice awarded the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Broadcaster of the Year, last in 2011. He called all five of NDSU’s FCS National Championship games from 2011-2015 and the Bison NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament teams in 2009, 2014 and 2015.

 

Funeral arrangements for Miller are pending. Updates will be provided at www.fmredhawks.com.
