May 29, 2001

Three Brown players were named to the New England All-Star baseball team this week, as Dan Kantrovitz, Jonathan Stern and Robert Deeb will all play in the New England All Star baseball game on June 1 at Fenway Park in Boston.

Shortstop Dan Kantrovitz graduated from Brown on Monday as the school's career leader in hits with 208. This past season he became the first New Englander in 30 years to hit .400 twice in a four-year career, as he compiled a .417 average, pounding a school record 68 hits and driving in 41 runs.

Stern finished in the top 20 nationally in ERA, as he went 5-4 en route to being named Second Team All-Ivy. He fanned 53 batters on the season, and pitched four complete games, including a two-hit, 1-0 shutout of Yale in his final home start of the year.

Deeb set a school rookie record for hits with 63, becoming just one of four players in Brown history to notch 60 or more hits in a season. His .401 average is also the best freshman average in school history, while he swiped 15 bases as well. A second baseman, Deeb was among Brown's fielding leaders, finishing tops on the team in assists with 104.

The three, among 25 Division I players selected, will play at Fenway Park on Friday, June 1. The game will begin at noon.
