    Most of the top home run hitters in Division I are older, physical hitters who have the "man strength" needed to drive the ball with the new BBCOR bats. That description applies to the 6-foot-6, 215-pound Snyder. He has big league bloodlines with brother Brandon in the majors with the Rangers and his father Brian pitched in the big leagues. Matt Snyder led the Southeastern Conference with 10 homers in league play this spring, and while some scouts lament his lack of athleticism, he has strength and hitting smarts. He's improved defensively at first but is a 20 runner prone to hitting into double plays.
