April 29, 2020 - Coastal Plain League (Coastal Plain) - High Point-Thomasville HiToms News Release

High Point-Thomasville - The High Point-Thomasville HiToms will launch their 2020 Coastal Plain League campaign Thursday, July 1 and conclude league play Saturday, August 15th.

Entering their 22nd season of Coastal Plain League play, the HPT HiToms will celebrate the organization's 46th season of play. The full CPL league schedule will be released late next week.

"Collectively, the CPL League Office and all owners agreed that a slight delay would provide franchises with an opportunity to adhere to evolving state-specific 'social setting' guidelines," HiToms President Greg Suire said. "We have been in communication with our city of Thomasville municipal partners and the Davidson County Health Department so we want to make sure all fans understand that Finch Field will be a safe social gathering place."

In total, the HiToms 21 CPL Home games will be bolstered by a two-week pre-season schedule that will run from mid-June to the start of the CPL regular season. Pre-season matchups will be announced by mid-May.

"Although the crisis been a challenge, head coach Mickey Williard has done a great job of attracting upper-tier college talent," Suire said. "The ACC's 'Big Four' will be represented significantly as well as a number of former Post 87 HiToms so fans should relish this opportunity to watch their 'Hometown' HiToms."
