HPT HiToms Announce Conxt Series at Truist Point
(At one time, the HPT HiToms said they would never have anything to do with the High Point Rockers and Truist Point Stadium. Boy, how times have changed.)
High Point/Thomasville – The High Point Thomasville Hi-Toms and High Point Rockers announced today the launch of the HPT City Conxt series. Designed to showcase the southern Triad’s top amateur baseball organization, the HiToms will utilize Truist Point as its second home in 2023 for five marquee Coastal Plain League matchups. In addition, the HiToms organization will also bring their signature American legion squad – the Post 87 HiToms – to downtown High Point for select home contests.
“Although Finch Field will remain our primary home, we feel like it is time for the HiToms organization to showcase its broad spectrum of amateur baseball excellence in a more modern and downtown facility footprint,” HPT HiToms President Greg Suire said. “We will still be playing the majority of our home games at Finch Field, however in order for us to diversify our fan base and capitalize on the southern Triad’s focused growth we feel like spotlighting marquee matchups at Truist Point will facilitate brand expansion and enhance our player’s experience.
The HPT CONXT series will include five HiToms home games and select HPT Post 87 HiToms regular season and playoff contests. The downtown High Point series launches Thursday, June 1 as the Asheboro Zoo Keepers visit the Furniture City for the first time in each squad’s Coastal Plain League opener. As a bonus, the inaugural downtown HiToms home game will also feature the Post 87 HiToms. Welcoming Area 3 Northern Division foe Foothills (Mt. Airy), the Post 87’s will start game one of the HiToms organization doubleheader at 5:00 p.m. Game 2 of the evening has a tentative start time of 7:30 p.m.
