Donde Esta Cory Snyder

Cory Snyder was supposed to have a better baseball career than his stats at Baseball Reference reflect. He had a powerful arm and a powerful bat. He was healthy for his first three major league seasons where he hit 83 homeruns. Injuries took a toll on his playing time after that and in his next six years he was limited to 63 homeruns as he became limited to a fourth outfielder/role type player.

Cory also played for the first United States Olympic team that won the silver medal in Los Angeles in 1984. He was the fourth player drafted, selected by the Cleveland Indians in the first round in 1984. His 1986 season of hitting 24 homeruns put him fourth in the rookie of the year voting.

Whatever happened to Cory Snyder? It appears he is now managing in Taiwan after a year of managing in Mexico, where he led the Pericos de Puebla to their first Liga Mexican Baseball Championship in 30 years. Only three other American managers have led their team to the Liga Mexican Baseball Championship. Cory hopes to accomplish that same feat managing in Taiwan for the Chinatrust Brothers.
