Cory Snyder's Back!

This brought back memories. Not necessarily good ones, though:

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -- Cory Snyder could be forgiven for struggling to find time to live out his goal of working with young ballplayers.

Having six kids, after all, tends to make for a busy schedule.

But if Snyder can handle raising half a dozen children with his wife, Tina, he can certainly handle working with the Indians' Minor Leaguers.

So when the opportunity to do so presented itself this spring, Snyder, the Tribe's right fielder of the late 1980s, bit.

There was a time when Snyder and Brook Jacoby were my favorite Indians. They were the best hitters on the team in the late 1980s, but looking back on their actual statistics, that wasn't saying a whole lot.
