Max Muncy is signed to play collegiate baseball at Baylor University. His signability in the draft was a main concern for many major league clubs. He played high school baseball at Keller High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Max was selected as the Offensive MVP for Texas district 5-5A with a 0.458 batting average, a 1.000 slugging percentage, and a 0.642 on base percentage. He led the all DFW area class 5A teams with 9 home runs. Max went 33 for 72 with 9 home runs, 10 doubles, and 1 triple along with 28 runs and 34 RBI. He also led the area in walks with 37 walks in 109 plate appearances with the majority of those walks being intentional. He has played every position on the field over the last three years. In 2009, he played catcher, pitcher, third base, and shortstop in equal amounts.
Max played summer ball in 2008 with DBAT out of Dallas where former major leaguer Rusty Greer was his head coach. Six players from that team was drafted in the 2009 MLB draft, including first round pick Slade Heathcott (Yankees). With DBAT, Max hit 0.435 with 9 home runs, 16 doubles, 1 triple, 54 runs, and 58 RBI.
