Esix Snead (born June 7, 1976 in Fort Myers, Florida) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder for the New York Mets (2002, 2004). Snead was known for his speed, with 507 stolen bases in only 9 minor league seasons, but only four in two brief appearances with the New York Mets.[1]

College and St. Louis Cardinals

Snead attended the New Haven. On November 20, 2001, he was claimed off waivers by the New York Mets.

New York Mets

Snead played for Double-A Binghamton in 2002 and hit .252 with 64 stolen bases. He was called up to the majors and made his major league debut on September 3. On September 21, against the Montreal Expos, he got his first major league hit, a single, and also ended the game with a three-run walk-off home run.[2] He spent all of 2003 with the Triple-A Norfolk Tides and produced more of the same, a .220 batting average and 61 stolen bases. His batting average improved in 2004 to .264 and he played 1 game in the majors for the Mets.

Atlanta Braves

Snead became a free agent at the end of the season and signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves on November 10, 2004. He stole 46 bases for Triple-A Richmond, but his season was marred by a suspension. In a game against the Syracuse SkyChiefs, pitcher Dave Bush threw a ball between Snead's legs causing Snead to have to be held back by the catcher. After drawing a walk, he charged Bush while walking to first base and threw his batting helmet at him, causing both benches to clear. 20 members of the Braves were fined including Snead who also drew a 10-game suspension.[4]

Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles signed him on January 24, 2006, and he played for Triple-A Ottawa. In 41 games, he batted .220 with 15 steals. The Orioles released Snead on May 21.
