Biographical Information[edit]

J.T. Snow's father, Jack Snow, was an all pro receiver for the Los Angeles Rams. For the 2006 baseball season, J.T. adopted his father's football uniform number, 84.

Snow was a switch-hitter until 1998, then reverted to his natural lefthanded side for the rest of his career.

Snow hit a pinch-hit three-run home run off Armando Benitez in the bottom of the 9th to tie Game 2 of the 2000 NLDS between the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets.

Snow was thrown out at the plate trying to score the tying run from second on a Jeffrey Hammonds single to left to end the 2003 NLDS between the Giants and Florida Marlins. Jeff Conine made the throw and Ivan Rodriguez held on to the ball to complete the play.

Snow was released by the Red Sox after playing in 38 games in 2006. On September 24, 2008, the Giants signed him. On September 27th, he was in the starting line-up, batting fifth and playing first base. Before the leadoff hitter for the opposing Los Angeles Dodgers completed his at bat, Snow was replaced with Travis Ishikawa, and his professional career was over.

In his first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame in 2014, he received only 2 votes (0.4%) and dropped off the ballot.
