Senior Max Snyder has committed to play baseball at Siena College. The Friars right handed pitcher said, "I chose Siena because of the environment, the people and the coaches, basically everything about it attracted me there."
Snyder, who was born in New York and spent part of his childhood there, shared that after visiting again now it felt like a home away from home and the right fit for him.
He went on to say how he is looking forward to joining the Saints baseball team and continuing to grow as a better leader and teammate.
A two-year varsity letterman for the Friars, Snyder enters his senior season looking to fill the holes left in the starting rotation by last years graduating class.
Coach Gilbert shared, "Max has worked very hard in the last year. He's grown and matured from a player just going along with the program to someone who wants to be the best he can be and it has shown in his attitude and work ethic. I am proud of Max's maturity process and the growth he has made not only as a player but a young man. He gained valuable Trinity League experience as a junior and we expect him to be a dependable part of our pitching staff this year and see his hard work pay off in his senior campaign. We are very excited for him to continue his baseball career at Siena College and wish all the best."
In addition to baseball, Snyder is involved with the Red Cross Club at Servite.
Snyder is the third pitcher in the senior class to make a college commitment joining Alec Rath (LMU) and Knolton Clark (Purdue). He is also the first Friar baseball player to attend Siena College.
Snyder would like to express his gratitude for his family and coaches saying, "I want to thank my family, especially my parents, for helping me through this process and supporting me. I also want to thank Coach Gilbert and Coach Page for making me work harder and harder everyday and supporting me along the way."
Servite would like to congratulate Max on his college commitment and wish him the best this season and as he looks toward college.
