A beloved little league coach and umpire in Middletown who died almost a year ago to the day is continuing to be remembered by loved ones and the community.
Daniel Miller, 32, grew up playing baseball at Watts Park and later became a Little League coach, umpire and president of the Babe Ruth Baseball League.
He died June 12, 2022, year after his appendix ruptured while he was sick with COVID-19.
The park where he played as a boy and spent his adult life coaching and mentoring kids was dedicated to him and renamed “Miller Field.” 
Daniel’s mother Diane Miller said it was a special event.  
“It was very heartwarming that so many people loved him and respected him and now he has this legacy over at the field. If he knew this, he would be ultra-excited," said Miller. 
Miller says she and her family are humbled by and appreciate the continued outpouring of love and support.
