Lollar looked like one of the NL's up-and-coming lefthanders when he went 16-9 for
the 1982 Padres. He had a 90-mph fastball and was extremely tough on lefthanded hitters.
Troubled by a bad elbow in 1983, he dropped to 7-12 and quickly faded. He didn't
survive the second inning of his 1984 WS start, allowing the Tigers four runs on
four hits and four walks in Game Two. Lollar played first base as well as pitcher
in his first two minor league seasons, and he was one of baseball's best-hitting
pitchers during his ML stint (.234). He hit three homers in both 1982 and 1984 and
came through with a pinch hit when given one at-bat by the 1986 Red Sox.
