Binghamton (WBNG BINGHAMTON) Two Section IV champions, a Class C Player of the Year, a state semifinalist, and a state champion -- that's what Seton Catholic baseball has produced over the last two years.

All of that is even more impressive because Seton had never won a baseball state title until 2013.

That recent success has come under head coach Jim Miller, who completed his 11th season in the dugout Saturday.

After Seton's run ended in the semis, Miller took some time to reflect on how far the program has come along.

"First year, we had nobody, really," Miller said after the Saints lost 2-0 to Hoosic Valley in the Class C semifinals.

"We developed some people, lost two people -- one in a tragic accident; the other guy went back into school with his cleats on, slipped and screwed up his leg so he couldn't pitch. He had to start over the second year. The program has come a long way in the 11 years."

That response came in reply to a question about whether Miller had potentially coached his last game. Miller did not say whether he would return to coach or not in 2015.
