 Biographical Information
Snelling only hit .125/.147/.188 with 2 runs and one RBI in nine games as Australia's right fielder in the 1999 Intercontinental Cup but they still won their first Gold Medal ever in a major international competition. He played for Australia at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Snelling was one of Australia's best hitters in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. Their right fielder, he went 3 for 11 with 2 walks (the team lead), 2 homers (the team lead), 3 runs and 3 RBI in 3 games. His 9 total bases tied Brett Roneberg for the team lead and he was second in slugging to Roneberg. All his hits came in a 17-7 win over the Mexican national team, the homers coming off Oliver Perez and David Cortes. The performance earned Snelling a deal with the San Diego Padres shortly after Australia was eliminated from the event.
