The Atlanta Braves lost a legend in Paul Snyder, who passed away Thursday night at 88 years old. He spent the entirety of his professional baseball career in the Braves organization.

His tenure with the Braves began in 1958 as a player and wrapped up in 2007 after scouting, managing a minor league team, and assisting the general manager. Responsible for finding Tom Glavine, David Justice, Chipper Jones, and more, Snyder is best remembered for his role as scouting director.

Each of us at Battery Power send our condolences to the family.
