William Howard Dillman (born May 25, 1945 at Trenton, New Jersey) is a retired American professional baseball player. A right-handed pitcher, he appeared in 50 Major League games over two seasons for the 1967 Baltimore Orioles and the 1970 Montreal Expos. He attended Wake Forest University, stood 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall and weighed 180 pounds (82 kg).[1]

Taken by the Orioles in the 6th round of the 1965 amateur draft, Dillman made his Major League debut for the Orioles in 1967.[1] He pitched five innings of no-hit baseball in relief of starting pitcher Tom Phoebus.[2] He struck out veteran Phil Roof and held off all-star Bert Campaneris to win the game in his first appearance.[3]

Dillman finished 16 games in his career and amassed 3 saves.[1]
