Annual Sam Snider Summer Camp

Your camp coaches, Sam Snider and Jeffrey Snider:

Sam was with the Baltimore Orioles from 1980-2007, serving as the batting practice pitcher, bullpen catcher, and bullpen coach. Sam was hired full-time with the Orioles by Cal Ripken Sr. in 1987. In his time with the Orioles, he threw batting practice to Hall of Famers Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr. and warmed up greats such as Jim Palmer, Scott McGregor, and Mike Mussina in the bullpen.

After the Orioles, Sam went on to coach in the Atlantic League alongside Orioles Hall of Famers Chris Hoiles and Tippy Martinez for the York Revolution. Sam has 30 years of professional baseball experience and is a wealth of knowledge in all areas of the game.  

Sam's son, Jeffrey, is a Finksburg Lions Alum, 2019 All-MIAA Team at Loyola Blakefield, now playing college ball at Bridgewater College. For the 2023 season, Jeffrey started all but two games, led the team in walks and home runs, ranked third on the team in doubles and RBIs, and racked up four RBI in a win over Washington and Lee where he hit the go-ahead three-run home run.  

"Trust me, Sam is great with the kids, knows his stuff, and the kids will love hanging out with a former major league player/coach and a former lion now in the midst of a successful college career." ~Frank Roelke, Finkberg Baseball President
