Hi- we cannot determine the cause of the symptoms based on the shared photos or whether it's a disease or environmental/physiologic issue. There are a number of tomato fruit diseases that are fairly common in high tunnel and greenhouse production, such as white mold (timber rot), topsoviruses, and late blight. In most cases you would also see foliar symptoms.
Here are some relevant web pages:

If you are a commercial grower please contact the ag educator in your county/city University of Maryland Extension office:

We suggest contacting your ag educator to work toward a diagnosis of the fruit issue. You can also sen fruit samples to the Plant Diagnostic Lab on the UM campus:

Just wanted an idea if you have seen this phenomenon before,

We have not seen these symptoms before. We work entirely with home, community, and school garden clientele and don't have experience working with commercial high tunnel and greenhouse producers.

Thank you Jon
