Tyler Bream turned pro in 2011. His father Sid Bream spent 11 seasons in the majors. His father as well as uncles Sheldon and Dave all played at Liberty, just like Tyler did.

Bream was All-State in high school as both a junior (.347) and senior (.475). As a college freshman, he hit .337 and was third in the Big South Conference with 57 RBI. Louisville Slugger named him as a Freshman All-American. In 2010, the sophomore was second-team All-Conference with a .357 average, 57 RBI and 22 doubles. He led the Big South with 96 hits (a school record) and was third in doubles. That summer, Tyler batted .262/.290/.370 for the Wareham Gatemen and drove in 26 runners. He tied Jordan Ribera for the Cape Cod League lead in RBI. As a junior at Liberty in 2011, the third basemen struggled at .252/.291/.332 while fielding .903, his worst college performance. Despite the slump, the Arizona Diamondbacks picked Bream in the 42nd round of the 2011 amateur draft.

Bream debuted in the minors with the Yakima Bears; after 12 games, he was hitting .234/.294/.277 with 15 strikeouts in 47 at-bats and as many errors (5) as runs produced.
