WILSON, N.C. - Mother Nature postponed Friday night's originally scheduled contest between the Wilson Tobs and the Martinsville Mustangs at Historic Fleming Stadium. It is the second time this season that the two teams will have to play a doubleheader because of rain and field conditions.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader against the Mustangs at Historic Fleming Stadium on Thursday, June 12th beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets from tonight's game can be used for admission to tomorrow night's game against Morehead City or on Thursday, June 12th for the doubleheader against Martinsville.
The Tobs will host the Morehead City Marlins at 7 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m. Fans will have the opportunity to win cash prizes just by attending the game as part of the BB&T Fan Fanatic $500 courtesy of BB&T Bank.
The Wilson Tobs enter their 22nd season as a founding member of the Coastal Plain League. The upcoming season for the Tobs will see an expanded community outreach effort, increased participation in helping the less fortunate, a Pettit Cup Championship team, and more exciting entertainment for the Wilson Community. We would like to dedicate each successful season to the Wilson Community, Coastal Plain League Organization, Host Families, Corporate Partners, and the Dedicated Fans throughout the city of Wilson. The Wilson Tobs have played host to over 100 alumni taken in the draft and have produced a dozen players who have gone on to play in the MLB, including Cy Young & MVP winner Justin Verlander.
