[edit] Biographical Information

Steve Dillard was criticized for lacking defensive skills of a major league second-baseman, although his statistics do not really bear that out. His best years were 1976 with the Boston Red Sox (.275) when as a rookie he shared the second base chores with Denny Doyle and 1979 with the Chicago Cubs (.283) when he shared that job with Ted Sizemore. In 1980, the Cubs tried him at third base but he lacked the arm and slipped to .225 offensively. He ended his career with a September call-up for the Chicago White Sox in 1982.

In 1989, Dillard played for the Bradenton Explorers of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He batted .226 in 53 games for the club.

Steve's son Tim Dillard is a pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. His other sons, Andy Dillard and Jeff Dillard, played professionally as well.
