James Cory Snyder (born November 11, 1962) is an American former professional baseball right fielder. He played nine seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1986 to 1994 for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants, and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was well known for his powerful throwing arm and home run power. Snyder's overall career numbers were hurt due to injuries.
Snyder was a three-time All-American for Brigham Young University, and also a member of the 1983 BYU team (which at one point in the season was ranked No. 1). In his very first game with BYU, during his first three at-bats, he hit three home runs on three consecutive pitches.
In 1983, Snyder played collegiate summer baseball for the Harwich Mariners of the Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL). He batted .321 for the season, belting a league-record 22 home runs, including homers in four consecutive at-bats on July 7-8. Snyder led the Mariners to the league title, and was named the league's outstanding pro prospect. He was inducted into the CCBL hall of fame in 2003.
