Biographical Information[edit]

Cory Snyder was a member of the United States National Baseball Team at the 1983 Pan American Games and 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 2014-2015. He managed the 2016 Pericos de Puebla to the team's second Mexican League title, 53 years after their first one. He was the first American to manage the LMB champion since Dan Firova in 2001. He managed the Chinatrust Brothers in the 2017 CPBL.

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