ANAHEIM — It wasn't enough for anyone here Saturday to just give Costa Mesa native Daniel Foster a round of applause when he was awarded the U.S. Army's Silver Star medal before the Angels game Saturday night.

Standing along the dugout fence, Foster had a front-row seat for second baseman Howie Kendrick's first-inning home run. Kendrick made a point to give Foster a high five after rounding the bases.
