Wilson, N.C. – The Wilson Tobs Baseball Club is proud to announce the hiring of Griffin Bradley Meyers as the new Community Outreach & Digital Media Coordinator. Many Tobs fans will recognize Griffin because he was an Operations & Event Management Intern with the Club during the Summer of 2022. Before joining the Tobs, Griffin earned his Bachelor degree in Marketing & Sales from East Carolina University.
Griffin currently lives and commutes from Greenville, NC, but plans to relocate to the Wilson area soon. Griffin started his life in Greenville, SC, but his family moved to Mechanicsville, VA when he was very young. He grew up in Mechanicsville, playing multiple sports, and was named captain of his high school volleyball team where he received 2nd Team All-State honors as a senior. Griffin always wanted to work in sports, so working for the Tobs as his first job out of college is a dream come true. Giving fans the best experience while they are at Tobs games is his key focus in seasons to come.
When asked for the reason he accepted this position, Griffin referred to the experience and environment of the team, “After being an intern here, I knew I wanted to come back if a position opened up. The gameday atmosphere and the Tobs fans are the best in the CPL, I couldn’t imagine starting off my professional career anywhere else.” AGM Drew MacKinnon had this to say about the Tobs new hire, “Griffin was reliable and I always knew I could count on him when he was an intern to get the job done. Working in baseball, especially for a college summer league team with a small staff, requires all hands on deck with a go-getter attitude and Griffin was always ready to contribute no matter the job. I am excited to see him grow in his professional life and am excited to happily welcome him back to the Tobs family.”
The 2022 CPL Eastern Conference Champion Wilson Tobs will open up their 2023 season on Sunday May 28th. This game will feature pregame band Matty Begs and a postgame Firework Extravaganza show.
