High Point/Thomasville, N.C. – The High Point-Thomasville HiToms have announced the addition of Tyrese Hearst to the 2020 roster. The 6'2" right-handed pitcher was born and raised in Thomasville and attended Westchester Country Day. He's currently a junior at Catawba College after beginning his career with Winston-Salem State.
Hearst will be playing his second summer season with the HiToms. In 2019, he made 10 appearances and pitched a total of 19 innings.
The 2020 season, while short, was a good one for Hearst at Catawba. He was off to a 2-0 start at the point in which the season was canceled due to COVID-19.
Hearst earned all-conference and all-state honors en route to a state championship back in high school for the Wildcats.
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 Tyrese Hearst. Check out the video on HiToms TV using the link below.
