#620 Cory Snyder



Why this card is awesome: Because this card features a pretty funny mustache in it's own way. It's tough to see, but it's there. I also wish we could read that sign in the dugout. It's also kind of funny to see Snyder listed as a SS on the back of the card. After he made 8 errors in 34 games at SS in 1986, he didn't get many more games there. Oh wait, they trotted him out at SS for 18 more games in 1987 and he made 6 more errors.

Cool stat: Snyder had one of the lowest all-time OBP in a year with at least 30 HR.

I loved Cory Snyder. When I was a kid I always wanted to get to the park early enough to see him make throws from right field. He had a cannon.

His career fielding % at SS = .931

Which looks good compared to 3B (.922) and 2B (.846).

I loved it when the White Sox picked himup, but hated the fact that they never used him properly and tried to shove Walt Hriniak down his throat.

It didn't take long to figure that James Cory Snyder had dynamite in his bat, but he wore a skillet on his left hand when he went into the field.

And he wasn't all that dynamite with his bat either, actually.
