Though it is sometimes reported that Million played for the St. Louis Cardinals,, no concrete, contemporary record of this has ever been found, and Million does not appear in any official record book of Major League baseball.
While at least one web source reports that Million did play in the majors for St. Louis, no statistical evidence supporting this theory has been discovered, and Million does not appear in any official Major League baseball records.
It is within the realm of possibility that Million was invited to try out for the St. Louis Cardinals, or even that he participated in a Cardinals exhibition game or spring training game, neither of which would have been counted in official records. Even these assertions, though, have yet to be corroborated by any historical evidence.
Million appeared in the 1911 issue while playing for the Victoria baseball team. This card became quite popular among baseball card collectors, probably due to his name, and not his skill as a baseball player. The T212 issue was one of only two series to feature Million on one of its' cards. The other series, T4, was a cabinet issue also printed by Obak Cigarettes.
Million attended Broadway High School, and graduated in 1908. He went on to college at UW. After his playing days, he stayed close to home and moved to Seattle. There, he worked for the city as a claims adjuster. After leaving that position, he began working for the local Spalding Sporting Goods store, where he met his future wife, Christine. During his downtime, Million refereed in games for high school baseball, football, and basketball.
