Brown's Kantrovitz Drafted By Hometown Cardinals

June 6, 2001

Brown shortstop Dan Kantrovitz was selected in the 25th round of Wednesday's Major League baseball draft, as the Cardinals tapped the native son of St. Louis with the 764th pick in the draft.

Kantrovitz was a First Team All-Ivy selection in 2001, after setting a school record for hits in a season with 68 and a career with 208, becoming the first Brown player to accumulate more than 200 hits in a career. He led Brown in RBI with 41 in 46 games, stole 11 bases, and boasted a .968 fielding percentage on the year, as he was named All-New England, Academic All-Ivy and All-ECAC following the season.

In his career, Kantrovitz is among the leaders in a bevy of categories, putting together a school-record 24-game hitting streak in 1999, and becoming this past season one of just seven players in school history with 100 career RBI, finishing with 111. His 174 games played and 609 at-bats are also among the top two in those categories. Additionally, the 81 wins by Brown in his four-years is the best four-year total in school history.

Kantrovitz, the son of David and Barbara Kantrovitz, was a graduate of the John Burroughs school in St. Louis. He graduated with a degree in organizational behavior and management this May with an overall GPA of 3.86.
