17-year-old Max is currently attending the Perfect Game National Showcase in Hoover, Ala.
The showcase is held annually for athletes entering their final year of school.
For Max, it's the perfect opportunity to show why his player rating (9.5 for Perfect Game) is as high as it is.
The first baseman and right-handed person is described on the website as someone who "moves very well out of his pocket on the first base, has agile feet, great arm strength for the position and no sporting reason that he cannot play on the third base or a corner position. "
The report also found that the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder has a "high hand start and a quick and short path to the ball".
Mark himself was known for having a short, compact swing in the middle of an illustrious 16-year career, and now, these numbers speak for themselves.
Max, an Oklahoma commit, also received praise for his timing and the fact that "he can bomb even without an adult."
