GREENWOOD, Ind. – Displaying excellence on the field as well as in the classroom, Harvard baseball's Josh Ellis and Patrick Robinson have been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District first team, as announced by the organization on Thursday. By virtue of their selections to the team, both players are eligible for Academic All-America distinction.
A senior captain, Ellis was a standout for the Crimson at catcher. An Ivy League honorable mention selection a year ago, Ellis posted a hitting line of .274/.306/.368 on the season, adding three home runs and 10 RBI with six stolen bases. Ending the season as the Crimson's leadoff hitter, Ellis also led the Ivy League in runners caught stealing percentage (47.2 percent, 17/36).
Robinson emerged in his sophomore campaign as one of the most-dangerous sluggers in the Ivy League. The outfielder led the Ivy League and ranked in the top-10 nationally in slugging percentage (.738), while also holding one of the top marks in batting average (.373) and on-base percentage (.436). Robinson belted a team-high nine home runs on the season while tallying an Ivy-best 25 extra-base hits. He drove in 34 runs on the season.
Ellis and Robinson helped the Crimson tally its winningest season since 2006. First-, second-, and third-team All-America honorees will be announced later this month.
