Matt Holliday of the St. Louis Cardinals named Bank of America
presents the National League Player of the Week

St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has been named Bank of
America Presents the National League Player of the Week for the period
of June 14-20, 2010. Bank of America, the Official Bank of Major
League Baseball, is the presenting sponsor of the National League and
American League Player of the Week Awards, which reflect Bank of
America's long-standing tradition of promoting and recognizing higher
standards of accomplishment.

Holliday hit .435 (10-23) in six games last week and led the Majors
with a 1.000 slugging percentage, while his four home runs and 23
total bases both tied for first. The Oklahoma native was tied for
second in the N.L. with eight RBI and 10 hits and was among league
leaders with a .480 on-base percentage and six runs scored. Batting
second in the lineup for the first time in his career, the right-
handed slugger went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored on Monday,
June 14th, as the Cardinals defeated visiting Seattle 9-3. Holliday
sizzled through the weekend's Interleague series with his former club,
the Oakland Athletics, by going 8-for-12 (.667) with a double, four
homers and eight RBI and helping the Redbirds take two out of three.
Holliday crushed two homers on Sunday, the first multi-homer
performance of the resurgent slugger's 2010 season. This marks
Holliday's sixth career weekly award, the most recent being for period
of April 7-13, 2008, when he was a member of the Colorado Rockies.
