Personal

Max is a disciplined hitter with power to all fields.  He has above-average speed, which is an asset defensively and on the base paths, and he has a good throwing arm.  His primary positions are the outfield and third base, but he has significant experience at first base, second base and shortstop.  So he adds a lot of flexibility to a roster.

Max leads by example and is a very supportive teammate who brings energy and a positive outlook to the clubhouse, practice field and game days.  His focus is on team goals, rather than individual ones.

Max continues to work out and train regularly to ensure that he will be in top condition and ready for any opportunity that may arise.

He also has youth coaching experience and would be interested in working with a club’s coaching staff.

Testimonials

Pete Fukuhara

Palo Alto High School, Head Baseball Coach

Max is one of my favorite kids I’ve ever coached. He brings a ton to the table including being a leader, a positive attitude everyday, super coachable, off-the-charts work ethic and will be the first one to the field and the last to leave. Max is a great baseball player who loves the game and plays it the right way. I had the pleasure of coaching Max at the Varsity level in high school for four years and in that time he played 3rd, 2nd and SS and he hit anywhere from leadoff to clean up. Max is a great ball player but an even more impressive young man.

Major League University, Operations Manager

I first met Max as an incoming freshman at the University of San Diego and had the pleasure of working with him for two years as an assistant coach. A few things stood out to me with Max immediately—he was willing to do anything to help the team win, he was a workhorse, and he brought a great attitude with him every single day.

Max showed me he was willing to do anything to help the team by his drive to improve at every position. We were fortunate to have some great teams at USD, but there was always a position that was hurt, or struggling, and needed a replacement. Max’s bat was often the one we wanted in the lineup so we would send him out to right field, or left field, or second base, or first base, or—you get the picture. He is a great utility guy and even took on some catching for us in a time of need.

Max is a true workhorse. The guy was one of the leaders in his class that helped change the culture of USD around. He and about four other freshman started making the field their second home. They would come back and hit late as a group, get up early and get grounders. It was incredible to watch their game improve from the work, but also them bringing others with them. It fully transformed our culture over two years and I stand by that.

Above all else, Max carries a great attitude with him everywhere he goes. He is always showing up with a smile, asking you how you are doing. Two types of people in the world: energy bringers and energy suckers. Max was the guy that would walk into the room and the place would light up. He is definitely a guy you will want to be on your team as an athlete, and as a quality human being.

I hope this information helps make someone’s decision on Max a little easier. If anyone has further questions feel free to reach me at rmcintiremlu@gmail.com .
