Nevada Baseball's Foster signs with Pirates

RENO, NV - Former Nevada baseball player Kaleb Foster signed a free agent deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday.

The Douglas High grad is the first position player from this year's Wolf Pack team to make the jump to the next level.

Pitchers Grant Ford (5th round, Pirates), Ryan Anderson (12th round, Yankees), and Bradley Bonnenfant (undrafted, Royals) also signed with Major League teams.

Foster missed some time this season with an injury but managed to see time in 24 games, starting 19. He led the Wolf Pack in on-base percentage (.439) and was fourth in OPS (.880).

Foster's biggest moment this season came in Nevada's first game of the Mountain West Conference Tournament when he hit a home run off of Fresno State's Ryan Jensen. The Bulldogs' pitcher went on to be drafted 27th overall by the Chicago Cubs.
