Six players from the division-leading Tarboro River Bandits have been named to the Premier Collegiate League’s 2021 East All-Stars first team. The game, pitting the league’s best from the east and west divisions, will square off Friday at Tarboro’s Municipal Stadium.

TARBORO — Tarboro’s River Bandits pushed across single runs in the first and third innings, then plated three more in the seventh to take a 5-1 win Thursday night over the Greenbrier Knights at historic Municipal Stadium.

“They were ready to get back on the field … they’ve been limited (by the rain) to the batting cages,” Tarboro River Bandits Coach Vince Fondacaro said after his team swept a doubleheader from Catawba Valley, 1-0 and 5-2, Sunday afternoon at Tarboro’s Municipal Stadium.

The Tarboro River Bandits blew the lid off their season opener Monday night, taking an 11-2 win on the road against the Fuquay-Varina Twins.

Tarboro’s River Bandits report Thursday for the team’s second season and first as a member of the Premier Collegiate League.

It was a Tuesday, the first afternoon where the sun poked through the clouds after a weekend of rain, and Kingsley McLeod could be found jogging along Peachtree St. in Rocky Mount.

Tarboro’s River Bandits will play a 46-game schedule, opening on the road against the Carolina Pirates on May 27 at Western Harnett High School, according to the Tidewater Premier Collegiate League (PCL) website.
