High Point/Thomasville, N.C. – The High Point-Thomasville HiToms have announced the addition of Josh Nifong to the 2020 roster. The 6'5" right-handed pitcher was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina, and attended High Point Christian Academy. He is currently a junior at Duke.
Nifong will be playing his third year with the HiToms. He was a part of the 2018 Petitt Cup runner-up team and a member of the 2019 team as well.
Strikeouts are a big part of his game, and last season for the HiToms, Nifong struck out 22 batters in 18 innings pitched. In a shortened 2020 season with the Blue Devils, he averaged more than one strikeout per inning.
He was named to the 2017-18 ACC Academic Honor Roll and was tabbed No. 47 on Perfect Game's list of Top 50 College Freshmen.
HiToms President, Greg Suire, sits down with Head Coach Mickey Williard to talk about the HiToms 2020 season and some of our "hometown players" such as Josh Nifong. Check out the video on HiToms TV using the link below.
