However, he broke his leg in a practice collision with Bruce Murray a few days later. While convalesing, Lassiter was contacted by AD Carmelita. As Lassiter recalls it, "I have no idea how they got my name. They paid for my trip down there while still recovering from my leg injury, and I signed a contract." He played the 1993-1994 season with Carmelita before the second biggest club in Costa Rica signed him to one of the most lucritive contracts of any foreigner. LD Alajuelense. After the 1994-1995 season, Lassiter received offers from several Mexican and European clubs, but Alajuelsense offered Lassiter a $60,000 bonus to remain with the club through the 1995 season.
