RIP Kevin Foster

Kevin Foster, pitcher for the Chicago Cubs in the 90’s passed away yesterday from renal cancer. Apparently he had been staying with family in Oklahoma City and was getting treatment in Houston but renal cancer is tough and his had spread.

We both went to Evanston Township High School at around the same time and he was a really nice guy. I was lucky enough to work at Wrigley from 93’ - 96’ when he was pitching and got to see him a lot.

Sorry to hear about this. :frowning:

My sister just posted a memorial site link on Facebook.

Eva Luna, ETHS '86

That makes it two 1990’s Cubs pitchers to die recently. Geremi Gonzalez got struck by lightning a few months ago.
