Texas A&M vs. Long Beach State baseball

Texas A&M’s Logan Foster takes a swing in the first inning against Long Beach State on Saturday at Blue Bell Park. Foster hit two home runs, including a grand slam, and knocked in seven runs on Saturday, extending his home run streak to three games.

Texas A&M baseball senior outfielder Logan Foster has entered the transfer portal, Foster confirmed through an A&M spokesperson.

The Lincoln, Nebraska, native finished a down season, batting .263 with five home runs and 37 RBIs. He started 58 of the Aggies 63 games.

News of Foster’s departure was first reported by D1Baseball.com’s Kendall Rogers.

Foster is a year removed from a .314 season at the plate where he belted a team-high eight home runs.

With former A&M assistant coach Will Bolt now serving as the head coach at Nebraska, returning home to play for the Cornhuskers could be an option for Foster.

According to the athletic department, Foster is a year away from graduation, which would force him to sit out a season or petition the NCAA for a waiver, per NCAA transfer rules.

A&M (39-23-1), which reached the finals of the Morgantown Regional, had one of the nation's best pitching staffs. The Aggies had an earned run average of 3.21 to rank third, but A&M batted only .251 to rank 234th in the country.

GARY DROST

With Foster leaving, that makes 5 position players who will not be back, four of which saw significant playing time. Only two returning starters hit above .264 and none above .290. All the rest of the position players who saw playing time hit below .264. That's 11 of the 12 remaining position players. Childress desperately needs to hire an honest-to-goodness hitting coach and recruit players who can actually hit. Absent that, the best pitching staff in the nation won't get the Aggies to Omaha, because nobody who's left has shown they can hit.
