Are you starting to feel the itch for baseball? It’s been a long offseason and it may only be February, but spring training is about to start in the Major League and soon baseball fever will be red hot. Where can a fan watch some baseball in Wilson, North Carolina?

There are few things better than watching America’s pastime in a baseball stadium. The crack of the bat, the smell of fresh cut grass and hot dogs right off the grill, what’s better than that? Luckily for Wilson residents, they have their own baseball team to cheer for, the Wilson Tobs!

We here at Medlin Mazda are a proud sponsor of the Wilson Tobs, a semi-professional team playing in the Coastal Plain League. The Tobs are entering their 23rd season as a founding member of the league and have had numerous players selected in the MLB draft and even some who have gone on to become star players like Cy Young and MVP award winner Justin Verlander!

Unfortunately, the Tobs don’t begin their season until late May. But don’t worry, there will be baseball played in Wilson soon!


Just recently, the Wilson Tobs announced that they will once again be hosting the 6th Annual College Classic! Played at historic Fleming Stadium, 10 schools from various Division II colleges and universities will compete against one another from Thursday, March 7th to Thursday, March 14th.

With games happening all day, fans can buy a ticket for just $6 and get access for the whole day. Imagine, an entire day of just watching baseball! You can’t beat that! Those that would like to learn more about the event and other Wilson Tobs news can learn more, here!
