Kristen returns this season for her third and final season as a Sun Devil after a 2007 season which saw her step-up huge for the team to take over the regular catching position and help guide some of the best pitching in the Pac-10 and the country. No slouch behind the plate as well as at it, Miller hit .229 on the season with 21 runs scored. She collected six doubles and 11 home runs for 26 RBIs as well for a .507 slugging percentage while defensively leading the team in put outs with a stellar fielding percentage of .991. Miller comes into her senior year as one of the main catchers and backbones of the defense on the team, and will look to continue leading them as her career wraps.
The elementary education major was born on April 18, 1986 in San Pimas, Calif. to Michael (refinery manager) and Eulema (homemaker) Miller of Diamond Bar, Calif. Third of four children, Kristen has three brothers; Damian (26), Dustin (24), and Dylan (10). Her older brother Dustin played baseball at Cal State Fullerton from 2000-2005. Her full name is Kristen Nicole Miller.
