PRINCETON, N.J. – After a strong showing over the weekend, sophomore Robert Henry (Cranston, R.I.) of the Brown baseball team was named the Ivy League Player of the Week, announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon.
Henry put together an impressive offensive performance in the Bears’ four-game set at North Florida, racking up nine hits, including two doubles and two triples. He batted .563 with a .938 slugging percentage and knocked in four runs. He also drew four walks to pave the way for a .650 on-base percentage. Henry is currently on a nine-game hitting streak and leads the Ivy League in hits (19), runs (11) and triples (2).
Henry is the first Bear to be named Player of the Week since Wes Van Boom shared the honor on April 23, 2013, and the first Brown player to be the lone recipient of the accolade since Bryan Tews on April 16, 2007.
