Wilson, NC - Your Wilson Tobs are proud to announce that four stars from the summer of 2023 have been honored for the All-CPL team. Trent Harris (RHP - UNC Pembroke), Shane Rademacher (RHP - Chowan), Reese Miller (RHP - West Texas A&M) & Scott Mackiewicz (CF - Toledo) were among the names chosen from the 14 teams in the Coastal Plain League. General Manager, Mike Bell, had this to say about the Tobs selections, “All four of these Tobs were great ballplayers, Shane and Trent both signed professional contracts with the San Francisco Giants, and they all made the CPL All-Star team. I have watched these players for multiple seasons wearing the Tobs black & yellow, and have seen them grow as athletes and as young men. It has been an honor to get to know each one of these guys and I look forward to seeing where their careers take them.”
Trent Harris had a benchmark summer in 2023 for the Tobs. Hurling his way to a 3-1 record with a 0.30 ERA and 33 Ks over 29.2 innings pitched, Harris would be recognized as the CPL Pitcher of the Year. Shortly following his Allstar selection, Harris signed a contract with the San Francisco Giants and packed his bags for the west coast. Since arriving on the scene, Harris has already been promoted and is currently pitching for the San Jose Giants in the California League with a 4-0 record, 3 Saves, 0.43ERA, 33Ks and a WHIP of 0.76 over 21 innings.
The four year Tob, Shane Rademacher, made it to Wilson each summer during his college career, where he worked quietly and produced some great numbers on the mound. The 2023 All Star Game Pitcher of the Night and Chowan alumni put up an ERA of 1.34, 42Ks, and a 3-1 record in 33.2 innings this summer, rightfully joining the All-CPL team. Following the season, Rademacher also signed a contract and joined Trent Harris with the San Francisco Giants.
Reese Miller was a man on fire this summer coming in to close out games for the Tobs, as he posted a 1.82 ERA, 55Ks, and 4 saves over 29.2 innings. Miller led the way for Wilson’s bullpen this summer with a high power arsenal, which is highlighted by his devastating slider. The Senior returns to West Texas A&M looking to lead the Buffaloes in a successful season and improve his draft stock.
A consistent everyday CF who can hit with power and field like a vacuum is hard to find, but the Tobs found just that in Scott Mackiewicz. The “Return of the Mack” was a hit for Wilson, as Mackiewicz played in 42 games, had 35 hits (including 12 XBH and 5 HRs), 23 RBIs, 31 Walks, and 8 stolen bags. Mackiewicz heads back to Toledo for his senior season with the Rockets, where he is sure to impress by flashing the leather and holding it down at the plate.
