Wilson, N.C. - The Wilson Tobs Baseball Club is honored to announce that Tobs staff member Robert Beare was named the 2018 CPL Scorekeeper of the Year. This was Beare's first season with the Tobs and the eighth year the CPL has named a Scorekeeper of the Year.
When asked about his accomplishment Beare stated "It's truly an honor to receive this award. To be recognized by my peers for everything I accomplished this summer is a great feeling and makes being a part of the Tobs and the Coastal Plain League that much more special."
Beare held duties such as scoring each game both in hard copy form, as well as updating the live stats in real time for fans following along at home. Each night he sent game night reports to the league office and sent box scores to local media. In addition to his nightly duties Beare was responsible for working closely with the league office in reviewing any scoring change requests that are sent in as well as making sure all players stats are correct on the league's website.
Beare would also communicate with the Tobs media relations department regarding interesting facts and player stats that could be used on write ups or the live broadcasts. Beare's diversity and commitment to the Tobs did not stop there, for he also painted/designed the baseball field logos, created stat packs, and put together every game day program stat sheet for fans.
"Robert is the type of individual that you can put your full trust into no matter what the responsibility is. He came to work every day on time, finished his daily tasks, and completed any new objective you gave to him. It is an honor having a Tobs family member like Robert on board this summer and have no doubt in my mind that he has a great future in the world of sports" – Tobs General Manager Mike Bell
Beare is currently starting his senior year at UNC-Wilmington where he is studying Statistics and Economics. He is a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society for Business and the Omicron Delta Epsilon Honor Society for Economics. His goal is to one day work as a data analyst in the professional sports field, with his eyes ultimately set on working in Major League Baseball.
