Stanley V. Miarka (born February 8, 1932, Died May 21, 2001) was one of the five white professional baseball players to be the first to join the Negro American League. He was signed to the Chicago American Giants in 1950 by Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe with the support of the team’s owner, Dr. J.B. Martin, who was concerned about black players joining Major League teams. The other four young white players were Lou Chirban, Lou Clarizio, Al Dubetts and Frank Dyall.

He had a brief Minor League career, playing 27 games at third base for two teams in 1953.
