Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 6, 2014

After being away from baseball for a couple of years, Stephen Ferntheil of Anchorage has returned with vengeance.

He just wrapped up his freshman season at East Georgia State College, where he finished fourth on the team with a .312 batting average in 28 games.

Ferntheil, of Service High fame, got hits in 10 of the final 11 games and basically doubled his average over the second half of the season.

The catcher ranked third on his team with 16 runs, thanks in part to 12 walks and a .396 on-base percentage.

Ferntheil graduated high school in 2010.
