Steve Dillard was criticized for lacking the 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 when as a rookie he shared the second base chores with Denny Doyle and hit .275, and 1979 with the Chicago Cubs when he shared that job with Ted Sizemore and hit .283. 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. The Sporting News reported at the time that the White Sox had only brought him up because he needed a few more weeks on a major league roster to qualify for a pension; he only hit .171 in 16 games.
