Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar excites fans with his defensive wizardry on the field but it’s the city’s magic off the baseball diamond that has the 27-year-old under a love spell.

A note posted on his official Instagram account on Sunday revealed Pillar’s deep attraction to Canada’s most populous city.

“My last 24 hours in toronto [sic] has even furthered my feelings towards the city,” he wrote. “I could always feel the love from the fans and blue jay nation but the people, fan or not is what deepened my love for Toronto.”

“I just had the most incredible experience meeting and working with new people and thought I would share my feeling for what just happened today!”

Pillar didn’t explain what that “incredible experience” was but it definitely left a huge mark on the baseball star.
