The Hamilton Cardinals announced on Wednesday the return of slugger Jon Dziomba ( Buffalo, NY). Jon returns for his 3rd season with the Cardinals. Last season Jon hit .325 ( 25-77) with 1 HR and 11 RBI’s and 8 SB’s.
“Jon is a clutch hitter and someone who battles every at bat,” stated GM Jeff Lounsbury. “I really think you saw Jon at his best in playoffs last year against top pitching when he hit .375 in 6 games with a homerun. He is someone that helps the other guys leads by example and plays the game hard.”
After graduating from Mercyhurst, Jon played 9 seasons of independent pro ball with a career average of .281 ( 391-1392) in 381 games.
“I am truly honored and blessed to be joining the City of Hamilton and the organization for another season of Cardinals Baseball,” said Dziomba. “Last season was great ride and I look forward to helping the team to again create success and a winning atmosphere in 2019.”
The Hamilton Cardinals are members of Ontario’s most elite baseball league, The Intercounty Baseball League. The 101 year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, established in 1919.
