Seibu Lions give Pete LaForest a test-run

by on Oct.30, 2009 @ 9:09 am, under NPB

The Seibu Lions are holding Fall tryouts and one of the players they looked at on Thursday was Pete LaForest, a catcher by trade, but someone that can also play some first and third.

During BP, LaForest hit 9 over the fence, including 4 out of the park.  On defense, the Lions tested him out at third.

LaForest plans to attend tryouts again today.

Said LaForest, "I've been eying Japan now for about 3 years.  My strength is home run power to all fields."
