Delmont Miller passes away

Postby TonyIBI » Sat Oct 25, 2008 9:11 pm

Minor league baseball lost a great person today. Met him at Kinston....he was unique in every way, certainly different...but a wonderful person.

For those that don't know, he is the scoreboard operator at Kinston for 22 years. Been doing it since 20.

Delmont Miller, Grainger Stadium’s longtime scoreboard operator, died early Saturday. He was 42.

Miller, a Kinston native known for his nightly “shout-outs” at Kinston Indians games, had a massive heart attack after being taken to the emergency room at Lenoir Memorial Hospital late Friday, a family member said. He died shortly after midnight.

Miller operated the stadium’s scoreboard for 22 years after a stint as the team’s mascot. With his shout-outs — a brief Q&A session over the public address system during which Miller would recognize friends around the ballpark — he became a staple in the Carolina League.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
