07/22/2020 - All-In Membership - San Bernardino, CA Max is a very talented 2-way player who has athleticism and versatility with the ability to play all over the diamond. With the bat is where he truly excels. Hands are loose/quick as he fires the barrel with a ton of whip/speed, connecting with pop and driving the ball from gap-to-gap. At 1B, active prep footwork on the balls of his feet allows him to move laterally with ease. He reads the hops and makes the plays with soft/sure hands. In the OF, he can cover a ton of ground with speed. He works behind and through the ball, with zip/carry/accuracy on his throws. McGwire is a prospect to follow as he enters his senior year.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
