Former Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar made his return to the Canadian hub as a member of the San Francisco Giants for the first time on Tuesday.

Pillar, 30, starred for the Jays for six seasons after they made him a late-round pick in the 2011 MLB Draft. He was traded to San Francisco just a handful of games into the 2019 campaign.

In his return to Toronto, the well-respected veteran received a resounding ovation from Jays fans. It really was something to behold.

Since being dealt to Northern California, Pillar has put up four homers and 13 RBI in just 18 games.

His best season in Toronto came back in 2015 when the outfielder sported a .278 average with 12 homers, 56 RBI and a .713 OPS.
