Norman Calvin Miller (born February 5, 1946) is an American former professional baseball player who played outfielder in the Major Leagues from 1965 to 1974 for the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves. Later in his career he served in the Astros' front office.

Of Jewish descent, Miller was born in Los Angeles, California. He batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and weighed 185 pounds (84 kg). Originally signed by the Los Angeles Angels, he was selected by Houston in the 1964 Rule 5 draft. His career was curtailed by a back injury, and he retired at the age of 28. Miller appeared in 540 games and notched 325 hits as a Major Leaguer.

Miller scored the winning run in the famous 1968 1-0 24-inning game between the Astros and New York Mets, when Bob Aspromonte's bases-loaded ground ball went through the legs of Met shortstop Al Weis for an error.

In 2009, Miller published a memoir entitled To All My Fans From 'Norm Who'?. Miller serves as a sports radio host on Saturdays on KILT-AM.
