PHILADELPHIA - For the second week in a row, Tim Graul of the University of Pennsylvania baseball team has been honored by the Philadelphia Big Five and the Ivy League as the Player of the Week. The junior continued his remarkable run by pushing his hit-streak to 14 with hits in all four games last weekend.
He finished his season with three multi-hit games, including back-to-back three-hit games in game two Friday and game one Saturday. The catcher tallied five RBIs on Saturday, giving him six for the week, and helped the Quakers to their only win.
Graul finished the season on a 14-game hit streak in which he batted .534 with five home runs, 11 doubles, and 19 RBIs. He finished the season first in the Ivy League in home runs (8), RBIs (35), doubles (21), hits (59), slugging percentage (.642), and at-bats (162), and finished third in batting average at .364.
Graul's 21 doubles are tied for the second-best single-season performance in program history with Rich Lombardi in 1984, and his 59 hits are tied for sixth with Glenn Partridge in 1976.
