Hisanobu Watanabe had a chance to watch Pete LaForest on Friday and liked what he saw.
"He has more power than Sledge and has a steady swing. Should be interesting," said Watanabe.
LaForest has been invited to participate in the Lions' Fall camp that begins on the 31st.
Said LaForest, "I felt relaxed out there and was able to hit the ball with good authority."
The Loins also said that they intend to give him an official tryout during Fall camp.
