MBHOF Names Henson & Miller To 2020 Class
The Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame announced on Tuesday that former University of Detroit baseball coach Bob Miller and former Brighton HS baseball star/U-M football star Drew Henson would make up the 2020 class of the Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame.
After starring at Redford St. Mary, and at the University of Detroit, Bob Miller became a member of the famous Philadelphia Phillies "Whiz Kids" of 1950, helping lead the Phillies to a surprise National League pennant (lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series in a four-game sweep). He later became head coach at UD-Mercy for more than 30 years, accumulating nearly 900 victories as head coach.
Drew Henson is one of the greatest players in the history of high school baseball in Michigan. His senior season (1998) at Brighton HS is one of the best in state history. Henson hit .605 with 83 runs batted in, as well as 22 home runs, 71 hits and 83 runs scored. He later starred in football at the University of Michigan, and played for the New York Yankees in the major leagues.
Miller and Henson are scheduled to be inducted into the MBHOF in August at Cooley Law School Stadium in Lansing.
