High School Varsity Classic #1
March 17th & 18th
The Wilson Tobs are excited to announce the Annual High School Varsity Baseball Classic to be held at Historic Fleming Stadium from Friday, March 17th to Saturday, March 18th, 2022. The Classic will feature (7) games, involving (14) schools from around North Carolina. As normal, there is no TEAM monetary entry fee this year, but instead, the fee will be non-perishable food donations. Food donations provided by players, coaches, and fans will be distributed to food pantries to feed those who are less fortunate in the Wilson County area in participation with the Wilson Tobs Annual Home Run for Hunger Program. “This is one of my favorite events we put on because the talent and love of baseball around this area is unmatched. Giving high school students the opportunity to come out to a historic collegiate facility and experience the entertainment this classic provides. We always do our best to provide the best experience to everyone that attends.” said Wilson Tobs General Manager Mike Bell.
For just $6, fans can purchase an all-day pass and enjoy a full day of baseball action at Historic Fleming Stadium (5 an Under Free). Gates will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the first game of the day.
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. The final (2) Firework Extravaganzas of the season will be Saturday July 1st and Saturday August 5th.
