A-Rod Wins Weekly Honors

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Vladimir Guerrero have been named co-winners of the Bank of America Presents the American League Player of the Week for the opening period of the 2007 season, ending April 8th. Bank of America, the Official Bank of Major League Baseball, is the presenting sponsor of the American League and National League Player of the Week Awards, which reflect Bank of America's long-standing tradition of promoting and recognizing higher standards of accomplishment.

Rodriguez hit .381 (8-21) with a 1.095 slugging percentage, three doubles, four HR, 11 RBI and 23 total bases. On Opening Day, he went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base. In three games against the Baltimore Orioles April 6-8, Rodriguez went 5-for-11 with three home runs and eight RBI. In the April 7th game, the two-time American League Most Valuable Player hit a two-run shot in the first inning. Then, trailing by a run with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, the 10-time American League All-Star hit a walk-off grand slam home run, marking the third game-ending grand slam home run of his career. This is the 11th weekly award of Alex's career.
