Miles and Miles and Miles

I am running a one-mile race tomorrow.  Since I've gotten the Layman database re-loaded onto my macbook I can get back to the searches that I like to do.

It turns out that there have been very few MLB players with the first names of Miles or Myles.  I found two up until 2016 - I really need to update the data now that I've restored it.  I found five players with a last name of Miles.

None of these players got onto a Kellogg's card.  So, I went the extra distance and attempted to find someone who had a Kellogg's card.  Nope.  I got desperate and used the Spanish word Milla.  Hey, that will work.  Felix Millan will have to do.  He is in the 1976 Kellogg's Baseball card set.

I will try to get back to the cards.  Millan was also included in the 1974 Kellogg's set.

Update - I ended up racing someone named Miles.  Since my qualifying time wasn't very fast I ended up running with lots of kids between the ages of 12 and 16 along with some old guys instead of being with the 17 - 30 year-olds who run fast.   I ended up far in front by the end of the race with a time around 5:18 - 5:20.  Unfortunately, the FAT system screwed up and had me at 5:27 and not even winning my heat.  It was a good starting point to try getting myself under 5:00 by the Summer.
