History[edit]

The team's name dates back to a team that was shared by the High Point and Thomasville communities in the Carolina League (1954-1958, 1968). The HiToms won the Carolina League championship in 1968. The following year they changed their name to the High Point-Thomasville Royals for one campaign.

The High Point-Thomasville HiToms are the first team in CPL history to win the league championship three years in a row (2006, 2007, 2008).
