Oriole #885 Brandon Snyder

My favorite autograph of Snyder, however it looks like my sharpie was a little dry that day

Brandon Snyder made his MLB debut with the Orioles on Friday night, appearing as a ninth inning defensive replacement in another Orioles win. He made his first Major League start yesterday and went 0-3 with a strikeout but was 10-10 in fielding chances and also helped turn a double play.  He will forever be the 885th player to wear the black and orange uniform in Baltimore.

He was one of the O's September call-ups, so he had to bide his time on the bench for 9 days before he made it into a game.  I hope that he plays in a game or two during the upcoming homestand so the Baltimore fans get to see him play.  I wrote a post about him back in February after the O's added him to the 40 man roster, so don't want to repeat much from that, but please check the link to learn about him. 

Good Luck B-Snyde.  We hope that you can find success at the Major League level!
