Anaheim Angels second baseman Adam Kennedy, who led the circuit in batting, slugging and on-base percentage, has been named Bank of America Presents the American League Player of the Week for the period ending August 29. 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 the bank's long-standing tradition of promoting and recognizing higher standards of accomplishment.

The 2002 AL Championship Series Most Valuable Player currently has a string of five consecutive multi-hit games, including a 4-for-4 day at Kansas City on Tuesday and Sunday's walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth versus Minnesota.

Other candidates included Kennedy's teammate Vladimir Guerrero (.478, 7 RBI); Oakland's Eric Chavez (.448, 4 HR, 8 RBI); Baltimore's Melvin Mora (.407, 8 RBI); Tony Clark (.400, 4 HR, 7 RBI) and Alex Rodriguez (.406, 2 HR, 5 RBI) of the New York Yankees; Kansas City's David DeJesus (.371, 2 HR, 5 RBI); Cleveland's Casey Blake (.333, 3 HR, 7 RBI); and Hank Blalock (.370, 3 HR, 8 RBI) of Texas.

Pitchers on the ballot included Minnesota's Johan Santana (2-0, 1.20 ERA); Tm Hudson (2-0, 1.88) of the Athletics; Boston's Tim Wakefield (2-0, 2.77); and Scott Elarton (1-0, 2.40, 1 SHO) of the Indians.
