Team Bio[edit]

Named for the Wilson Tobs class D team who played their games at Fleming Stadium in the 1940s as part of the Coastal Plain League, the modern Wilson Tobs are a Summer Collegiate Baseball team playing in the modern Coastal Plain League. They were an original member of the CPL, which debuted back in 1997.

The current Wilson Tobs are like every other summer college baseball team in that they dedicated and designed to provide minor league-style competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball. The Tobs operate in the model a Minor League team: playing nightly before fans in stadiums which seat thousands, using wood bats and minor league specification equipment, and experiencing road trips between games. The Wilson Tobs actively recruit, and have hosted collegiate athletes from throughout the United States. Like all other summer collegiate players, Tobs athletes are unpaid in order to maintain their NCAA eligibility, and live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.

  • All games are broadcast on WUBN 106.9 FM
