To earn the honor, Kennedy hit .500 for the week, with seven hits, including a home run and a double.

He received video messages from his high school coach Roy Hallenbeck and Trout.

"Buddy, congrats on the AFL Player of the Week, man. That's huge," Trout said in the video. "You're doing big things out there. I'm proud of you, man. Just keep it going."

Kennedy was a fifth round pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2017 draft.

During the 2021 season, at two levels, Kennedy combined to hit .290 with 22 home runs, 66 RBI and 16 stolen bases, between high A and Double-A.
