A day Southern's 'Doc' Foster won't soon forget

Southern

POSTED: Friday, May 18, 2012 - 10:30pm

UPDATED: Monday, May 21, 2012 - 10:11am

On one of the biggest days of his life, Brian Foster, better known as "Doc", went through two gut wrenching events.

The morning his Southern Jaguar baseball team faced elimination, Foster was scheduled to pitch to help lead the team to a win.

But if Mom isn’t happy, nobody’s happy.

“I said to Brian some years ago the only thing that he owed me was to get a college degree. Today we get to see that,” Carla Alfred, Foster’s mother, said.

While his teammates fought on the field, Foster waited patiently for his name to be called inside the F.G. Clark Center.

He traded in his cleats and glove for a cap and gown to walk across the stage and receive his pre-med degree at Southern’s graduation ceremony.

“There was never really a decision, what Mom wants Mom gets. This was the only promise she ever made me make her, to graduate from college. It meant a lot for her to see it,” Foster said.

“It was pretty hard to focus on the ceremony. I had a good view of my brother and he had a view of the scoreboard and I kept looking up at him throughout the whole ceremony for updates.”

"We all knew what was going on and we were feeling it for him. As a family the commitment was to walk across the stage and get a degree,” Foster’s mother added.

Outside on the baseball diamond the Jags pulled out a close win, advancing to play another game in which the recent grad would get the ball to pitch. 

“If you had to write a script I think this way you would want it to go. We get to see both him getting a degree and go out on the field with his teammates,” Alfred said. 

“I was never going to deny that kid that opportunity. He is one of those unique people and he is going to save a lot of lives and he is going to make the world a better place. I'm just happy that I got to coach him,” said Southern head baseball coach Roger Cador following the teams win in the morning game against Alcorn State. 

In the later game Doc took the mound in what would be his final game as a Jaguar. He pitched superb game, throwing eight innings, giving up just 2 runs, and striking out nine batters. Unfortunately for Foster, the Jaguar offense couldn’t score enough runs to win the game. But as the recent grad learned Friday, there are more important things than winning and baseball.
