Nebraska Baseball picked up another major commitment on Thursday.
Logan Foster is heading back to Nebraska. Thursday, Nebraska Baseball received a commitment from him.
An outfielder, Foster spent the last three seasons at Texas A&M. The 2018 season was a successful one for him. Batting .283 with five home runs and 37 runs batted in, he was able to put together a number of successful seasons on his resume. The 2017 season was an even better one for him. He batted .314, with eight home runs and 40 runs batted in. Especially when going up against SEC competition, those numbers are even more impressive. For his efforts, he was named to the 2017 SEC All-Freshman team.

Some of you may recognize the name. Foster was a graduate of Lincoln Southwest. The transfer will definitely be a homecoming for him, with homecomings being a something of a theme for the Nebraska Baseball program. With Will Bolt having ties to the program from his playing days, another homecoming is great to see. Especially for a coach who is building a program, you want to try to get players who know what the program is all about. Having played in Nebraska for high school baseball, Foster certainly has an idea of the type of expectations that are placed on him.
He doesn’t strike me as too much of a power hitter. Rather, he will probably go into the batter’s box looking for contact. In that sense, he is an intriguing player for me. The game of baseball is becoming one in which players try to hit the ball as far as they can. The art of pure contact and “small ball” is becoming a lost art. While the home run is certainly more exciting, small ball is important in order to get runners on base. Foster can certainly do that. Not only that, his statistics show that he can do it on a consistent basis.
This is another great fit for Nebraska Baseball. They are slowly rebuilding their roster. Not only are they rebuilding their roster, they are getting impact players that should provide a spark to the roster right away. Time will tell time will tell how much each player will contribute, but Nebraska is putting together pieces that should be able to make an impact for a long time. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Nebraska is putting themselves in a position to continue their winning ways for quite a while
