1970 Topps - Russ Snyder #347 (Outfield) - Autographed Baseball Card (Cleveland Indians)

Russell "Russ" Henry Snyder (b. June 22, 1934) is a former Major League Baseball player, who played as an outfielder for the Kansas City Athletics (1959–60), Baltimore Orioles (1961–67), Chicago White Sox (1968), Cleveland Indians (1968–69) and Milwaukee Brewers (1970).

He helped the Orioles win the 1966 World Series. He was a sharp-fielding outfielder … whose glove helped the team down the stretch" of the 1966 American League pennant race. In the September 22nd game that year versus the Athletics, Snyder made a diving catch to end the game and clinch the pennant for the Orioles. Then, in the World Series opening game, "he saved two Dodgers runs with a dramatic lunging catch of John Roseboro’s sinking liner" in centerfield.

In 1962, Snyder’s .305 batting average led the Orioles that year and in 1966, his .347 batting average at the All-Star break led the American League.

MLB statistics:
Batting average – .271
Home runs – 42
RBI – 319
