SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Augustana All-America pitcher Seth Miller is now a professional pitcher. The former Vikings’ right-hander recently signed a contract with the Sioux Falls Canaries, becoming the 32nd student-athlete under AU head coach Tim Huber to go onto a professional career.

“Getting a chance to sign a pro contract is such a fitting end to Seth’s career with us,” Huber said. I always knew he would get the opportunity because he is such a good pitcher and competitor. He is the type of guy that pro teams want.”

Miller, hailing from Blaine, Minnesota, completed his career at Augustana sitting second for most wins all-time with 24 while also cracking the top 10 for saves with seven. In 2023, he led the Augustana pitching staff with an 11-2 record and 3.09 ERA over 17 games and 102 innings. He struck out 93 batters and totaled three complete games.
