Wilson, N.C. – On Tuesday afternoon, the Coastal Plain League announced their all CPL teams for the 2017 season. Each team features 24 players: one player per each infield position, four designated hitter/utility players, five outfielders, six starting pitchers and four relief pitchers.
Making an appearance on the team was the Tobs very own Dawnoven Smith (North Carolina A&T). The Sophomore outfielder from Jacksonville, NC made a tremendous input on the Tobs offense this past season.
Building off a successful spring season at NC A&T, Smith was near the top of nearly every offensive category for the Tobs this summer. Smith paced the Tobs offense in hits (40), runs (31), and total bases (62). Additionally, the outfielder was second on the team in batting average (.313), homeruns (6), and RBIs (24).
The Tobs begin the Fall off season with the 7th annual High School Fall League on Monday, September 18th. This will feature local high school talent competing on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays until the end of October.
