Deeb named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

May 2, 2001

Brown second baseman Robert Deeb (St. Paul, MN) was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week on Tuesday.

Playing the weekend on a badly bruised ankle, Deeb went nine-for-17 against Yale, incluing a six-hit doubleheader on Saturday. He scored four runs and drove in two while swiping three bases, raising his average in Ivy play to .418. He had three multi-hit games in the four-game set with the Bulldogs.

Deeb has 55 hits on the season, just five shy of what was the single-season Brown record heading into 2001. He has had 15 multi-hit games this season, and ranks second on the squad in hitting with a .387 average. His 37 runs scored are also a team-high.

Deeb was a graduate of St. Thomas Academy, where he was a three-time letterwinner in baseball. He was named All-Conference twice and was an All-State Honorable Mention as a senior.
