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."
