During the week Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants passed Willie Mays for third place on the all-time home run list, he batted .733 with six home runs and 13 RBI and was named the National League Player of the Week for April 12-18.

Bonds was 11-for-15 with two doubles, six walks, seven runs scored and recorded a Major League-high slugging percentage of 2.067 and on-base percentage of .810. In San Francisco's home opener on April 12, Bonds hit a go-ahead three-run home run off Milwaukee's Matt Kinney for his 660th career home run in the Giants' 7-4 win. The next day he hit a solo shot to pass Mays, who had occupied third place on the all-time home run list since Hank Aaron passed him in 1972. Bonds capped off the week with his 65th multi-home run game on Sunday, going 4-for-4 to raise his season batting average to .500. The six-time MVP has won 12 Player of the Week awards in his career.

Other players nominated include: Moises Alou (.458, 5 HR, 7 RBI) and Aramis Ramirez (.462, 4 HR, 13 RBI) of the Cubs; Craig Wilson (.440, 2 HR, 5 RBI) and Kris Benson (2-0, 0.69 ERA) of the Pirates; Houston's Craig Biggio (.458, 2 HR, 10 RBI), Roger Clemens (2-0, 1.32 ERA) and Roy Oswalt (1-0, 3-hit shutout); Cincinnati's Adam Dunn (.471, 3 HR, 1.059 SLG); Paul Lo Duca (.500, 11-game hitting streak) of the Dodgers; Scott Rolen (.391, 3 HR, 10 RBI) of the Cardinals; and Arizona's Randy Johnson (1-0, 2-hit shutout).
