Five HiToms selected as CPL All-Stars

Five High Point-Thomasville HiToms will represent the Coastal Plain League's West Division at the 2019 CPL All-Star Show in Savannah, GA - Clemson's Evan Estridge, Lee's Logan Workman, North Carolina's Angel Zarate, and Middle Tennessee State's Josh Baker and Myles Christian

The All-Star Show will be held July 7-9 at Grayson Stadium, home of the Savannah Bananas. For more information on the format of this year's All-Star Show, click here.

Estridge and Workman have each been formidable arms on the mound for the HiToms this season.

Estridge, who pitched with the HiToms in 2018, has posted a miniscule 1.93 ERA through 14.0 innings pitched with HPT this season.

He's allowed just seven hits and two walks this year and recorded 19 strikeouts.

Workman, meanwhile, has dazzled with his strikeout stuff, fanning 28 batters in 17.1 innings pitched. That mark is tied for the 6th-most strikeouts in the CPL.

The right-hander has also walked just four batters this season and posted a 3-0 record to go along with a 2.08 ERA.

Zarate has hit safely in all 11 games he has played with HPT, batting .440 with a pair of home runs and and 10 RBI's. His 22 hits on the season leads the team.

Baker, a transfer to Middle Tennessee State is batting .254 on his CPL season with four home runs and 13 RBIs in 59 at-bats. Baker leads the HiToms in runs batted in and is 2nd on the team in homers.

The HiTom 1st baseman/designated hitter set a blistering pace at the plate earlier in the month of June, at one point recording four homers and seven RBIs in just six games. 

Christian is now the CPL's all-time career leader in home runs with 26, with six already on the season for HPT. That mark leads the HiToms, and his 18 hits on the year has him second, behind only Zarate in that category.
