Steve Dillard hailed from Saltillo, Mississippi and developed his baseball skills on the diamond at Ole Miss. Drafted by the Sox in 1972, he made it to Fenway as part of a 1975 September call up and got two hits in the first game he started. If not for multiple shoulder injuries and a glut of talent around the infield at Fenway his career might have turned out very differently. After three season of limited playing time Dillard was traded to Detroit for two minor leaguers and some cash.
