Schunk, 22, has been living at home with his parents in Decatur during baseball’s shutdown. In a recent interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 2019 second-round draft pick said he’s been staying sharp by going to the local park where he grew up playing youth baseball and taking batting practice from his father.
Schunk starred for the Bulldogs as a pitcher and third baseman from 2017-19. As a junior, he earned first-team All-American honors and won the John Olerud Award as college baseball’s best two-way player. Schunk posted a .312 batting average with 19 home runs and 114 RBIs in 154 games at Georgia, with 153 starts at third base. He went 3-4 with a 2.79 ERA and recorded 20 saves in 38 relief appearances covering 51-2/3 innings.
