Local picked for All-Star game

Preston Cole, the son of Mingo Junction’s Robert Cole and Chester’s Devon Cole, has been selected to play in the National 12U All-Star game in Myrtle Beach, S.C., after his team, the Powhattan Point River Bandits, competed in the national tournament, also in Myrtle Beach, in June.

He was selected by opposing coaches and will also compete in five all-American games in different locations across the U.S. coached by baseball youth scouts.
