Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"( Kevin ) Pillar was a walk-on, non-scholarship player at his Div. II college, and he chose Dominguez Hills because he'd have a chance to play every day as a freshman. The facilities sure didn’t lure him there: The Toros didn't even have on-site showers, unless you're talking about the hose. He'll tell you with a straight face that their clubhouse was the largest in the state, 'because it was a parking lot.' Behind right field, in lot four, the baseball players would park their cars in the same spot every day, because vehicles were the closest things they had to lockers. Pillar dressed in his Chevy Silverado before games." - Sports Writer Kristina Rutherford (SportsNet, Everyday Spectacular , 04/2017)
