Former Bulldog Mack Mueller to return to DI baseball at Baylor
ABILNENE, Texas —
Just over a week ago, Cisco College's season came to a quick halt after a double forfeit ruling came in the NJCAA Region V tournament final with McLennan.
But for Wylie Bulldog Mack Mueller, the journey will continue, this time back in Division I baseball.
The former two-time All-state pitcher for the Bulldogs will continue his collegiate eligibility at Baylor University this fall -- that is unless the MLB comes calling. Mueller's name is in the ring for a draft day call next week but even if that doesn't happen, there's still a lot to look forward to.
Over the last year, Muller's pitching has quickly turned to ace hitting. The former Wylie star gave up his time on the mound following his freshman season at Rice University in 2016. That led to a stop in Cisco with the Wranglers -- where Mueller really took time to increase his game at the plate.
Boy did he.
Under the direction of coach David White, Mueller would bat .443 on a team that led the NJCAA in percentage with .402. He also finished the season tied for the team lead in home runs with 15, while driving in 65 runs and scoring 65.
It's been quite the transformation over the course of a year. Mueller even put on some more muscle, and is primed for whatever path he's led to next. Whether that be Baylor, or into professional baseball -- Mack's experience through not just high school success, but in every level -- makes him one to continue to watch as the years progress.
