Barry Bonds Unamimous MVP Choice

Sponsored by:

San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds has won his fifth National League Most Valuable Player award and his first by a unanimous vote.

Bonds also won his first National League batting title this season with a .370 average and set records with 198 walks, 68 intentional walks and a .582 on-base percentage.

Bonds hit 46 homers, down from his record 73 of last year. He also led the Giants with 110 runs batted in as San Francisco won its first National League pennant since 1989.

Bonds gets a $500,000 dollar bonus for winning the title — on top of his $13 million dollar salary.
