WH grad Snyder goes into Wright State Hall of Fame

Gabe Snyder, a West Holmes graduate, was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Wright State on Feb. 17 after his stellar baseball career there.


The Wright State Athletics Department recently inducted eight members of the Mary and Al Schwarz Hall of Fame as the Class of 2024, and the class included West Holmes graduate Gabe Snyder, a standout from 2015-18 with the WSU baseball team.

The eight inductees represent five different Raider athletic programs and comprised the largest class in Wright State’s history. The induction ceremony was held Saturday, Feb. 17, centered around the university’s homecoming celebrations. The Hall of Fame Class of 2024 was introduced during the men’s basketball game that afternoon.

One of the most prolific players in Wright State baseball history, Snyder holds eight career records and was the 2018 Horizon League Player of the Year to cap off his collegiate career.

Snyder began his career as the HL Freshman of the Year and earned freshman All-American honors in 2015. A two-time member of the Horizon League all-tournament team, he also was an ABCA all-region performer in 2018 and received HL second-team and all-freshman team selections in his career.

He leads the Raiders in career games played and started while also being first in career at-bats, doubles, home runs, runs batted in, total bases and putouts. Part of two Horizon League regular-season champions and three HL tournament championship teams, Snyder played in the NCAA tournament in 2015, 2016 and 2018 and was a 21st-round draft pick of the Minnesota Twins in 2018.

The son of Brent and Barb Snyder, Snyder lives in Millersburg with his wife Aaliyah and is an accountant.

The rest of the class included Kristen Bradshaw(softball), Kim Demmings(women’s basketball), Seth Doliboa (men’s basketball), Jake Hibbard(baseball), Sean Murphy(baseball), Tony Ortiz(athletic department) and Jessica Rooma(women’s soccer).

“On behalf of Wright State athletics, I want to congratulate these eight Raiders on their selections as the newest members of the Mary and Al Schwarz Hall of Fame,” Director of Athletics Bob Grant said. “Each of these Raiders played significant roles for our university, athletics department and their respective programs.”
