The Boiling Springs senior thinks he found that at Division III Saint Vincent College. The Bubblers’ catcher announced his decision to join the Bearcats on Twitter Wednesday.

VonStein, who just quarterbacked the Boiling Springs football team to a couple wins, snapping a two-year drought, hit .360 as a junior last spring. His backstop skills helped Bubblers pitching post a 3.41 ERA and 108 strikeouts in 111 innings. Boiling Springs, behind Penn State-bound outfielder Tayven Kelley, made the District 3 tournament last year for the first time in several years.
VonStein said he is considering majoring in early education or business. His shortlist came down to Kutztown, Messiah and Penn State-Altoona, where former Bubbler Hunter Breon now plays.
Saint Vincent went 15-21 last season, 10-7 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference, under head coach Mick Janosko, who has led the Bearcats since 1998.
