In 2016, he graduated from Syracuse University with a master’s degree in museum studies and began working for the Wilton Historical Society in. He has worked for a variety of historical institutions and museums over the past few years, including the Erie Canal Museum, the Syracuse University Art Galleries, and the SUNY Upstate Medical University Historical Collections.

Foster maintains a lifelong interest in baseball and its history. He played baseball for more than a decade, and has represented teams from his hometown of Trumbull in leagues of all levels.
