Miller Express welcome back hard-hitting Tweet to lineup this summer

Junior infielder to return to team after leading club in batting average during 2022 season

Dawson Tweet will make his return to the Moose Jaw Miller Express this summer.

The Moose Jaw Miller Express were a team known for their offence during the 2022 Western Canadian Baseball League season, and now they have one of their top hitters set to make their return this summer.

The Express recently announced that infielder Dawson Tweet will once again suit up at Ross Wells Park, with the Russell, Man. product coming off a stellar campaign that saw him lead the Millers in batting average last season.

In fact, Tweet’s stellar .367 average would have seen him finish second in the entire WCBL if not for falling short of the minimum plate appearances to qualify for the league leaders. 

All told, Tweet saw action in 35 games and racked up 33 hits in 90 at bats, scoring 17 runs and knocking in 22. He also put together a solid .889 on-base-plus-slugging-percentage, finishing among the team leaders in that category as well.

Tweet put together a nine-game hitting streak from July 17 through July 31, and had hits in 11 of 12 games going back to July 13. Some of his best outings of the season came during that run, including a 3-for-5 showing that included a run, double and a pair of RBI during a 6-3 win in Medicine Hat. He also came up big in Moose Jaw’s first game after Canada Day, going 2-for-3 with a double, three runs scored and an RBI in a 10-7 win over Regina on July 2.

All that production should have come as little surprise given what Tweet put together during the spring of 2022 with the Minnesota College North Mesabi Range Norse during the junior college Minnesota College Athletic Conference season.

Tweet led the Norse with a .429 average while hitting 10 doubles, five home runs and knocking in 25 runs in only 30 games as a sophomore. That translated into a stunning 1.233 OPS, a sure sign of plenty of offensive production.

That all led to Tweet signing on with the NCAA Division II William Jewell College Cardinals for the 2023 spring baseball campaign. 

William Jewell opens their Great Lakes Valley Conference schedule on Friday, Feb, 17 when they travel to Tahlequah, Okla. to face Northeastern State University. The Cardinals are coming off a 15-13 campaign that saw them reach the GLVC championship tournament, where they lost out in two games.
