    In my June 11 column about Tell City’s 2011 graduates who played four years of college baseball, I inadvertently omitted Cordell Snyder.
    Snyder was one of the catchers for Oakland City University’s team this spring, splitting time there with Harrison graduate Ethan Collins, who also has Tell City ties (Collins’ parents, David and Dana Ice Collins are Tell City graduates).
    Snyder played 19 games, starting 13, for the 18-26 Oaks this year. He hit .205 with seven RBIs and drew five walks as he compiled a .326 on-base percentage.
