James Cory Snyder (born November 11, 1962 in Inglewood, California) is a former Major League Baseball player for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants, and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1986 to 1994. Snyder's best season came in 1987 with the Indians when he hit 33 home runs and had 82 runs batted in. He was well known for his powerful throwing arm, home run power, and a high tendency to strike out. 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 1984, Snyder was on the first Olympic Baseball team for the United States, which earned a Silver Medal.

Snyder managed the Na Koa Ikaika Maui, who play in the North American League.[1]

Snyder is currently a coach for the Tacoma Rainiers, a Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners.[2]
