Q.U.’s Ryan Snyder Continues to Receive Honors
The American Baseball Coaches Association and Rawlings named Ryan Snyder as a member of the ABCA/Rawlings All-American First Team on Monday, May 30. The honor makes Snyder a consensus first team All-American for all three major NCAA Division II lists including ABCA/Rawlings, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCWBA), and the NCAA Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA).
Snyder was selected as one of three outfielders on the first team. The senior from St. Louis, Mo. was one of just eight players selected to all three first team All-American lists. Snyder was one of five position players with consensus first team All-America honors.
Snyder finished his career at Quincy University with one of the best offensive seasons in QU history. Snyder broke the single season record for hits (92), home runs (23), and runs batted in (88). The senior right fielder achieved these numbers while hitting .444 (Third best in QU history) from the plate with a .527 on base percentage.
Snyder claimed the Great Lakes Valley Conference Triple Crown (best batting average, most home runs, and most RBI) in route to being named the unanimous GLVC Player of the Year. The St. Louis, Mo. native was also named a Josh Willingham Award and Tino Martinez Award finalist.
The senior was the consensus Midwest Region Player of the Year. Snyder was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team for his work in the classroom as well as on the field.
