[edit] Biographical Information

Cory Snyder was a member of the United States National Baseball Team at the 1984 Olympics. He had a nine year career in the major leagues, showing good power in his early years with the Cleveland Indians. He hit 3 home runs in a game twice, hit 2 home runs in a game 9 times, and had 4 grand slams.

He appeared along with Joe Carter on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1987. Many people point to this cover as a classic case of the "Sports Illustrated cover jinx". The Indians had a terrible year, going 61-101 despite the bright predictions by Sports Illustrated.

After managing in the independent leagues for 4 seasons, Snyder joined the Seattle Mariners' organization as a coach for the Jackson (TN) Generals in 2011-2013 and Tacoma Rainiers in 2014.

Snyder's father, Jim Snyder, was a minor league infielder for the Milwaukee Braves in 1961-1962.
