Born in Detroit, Michigan, Tresh graduated from Allen Park High School. He then attended Central Michigan University. While Tresh played a majority of his games in the outfield, he opened the 1962 season for the Yankees at shortstop, filling in for Tony Kubek who was performing military service. Not until Derek Jeter in 1996 would another Yankee rookie shortstop start on opening day. He also played third base, with most of his games at third occurring during the 1966 season.
