Born in raised in Kelowna, British Columbia, left-handed pitcher Paul Spoljaric came up through Kelowna’s minor baseball system before starring for Springvalley High School. Despite going undrafted in the MLB Draft, the Toronto Blue Jays saw enough in Spoljaric to sign him as a free agent in 1989. Spoljaric would slowly work his way up through the Blue Jays farm system over the next four years, making his Major League debut in 1994. Spoljaric would play parts of 3 seasons (1994, 1996, 1997) with the Jays, before finishing the 1997 season with the Seattle Mariners. After spending the 1998 season with Seattle, Spoljaric would begin the 1999 season with the Philadelphia Phillies before returning to the Toronto Blue Jays to finish the season. Spoljaric would join the Kansas City Royals for the 2000 season, which would be his last season in the Major Leagues. After his MLB career, Spoljaric would continue to play baseball. He would play for Team Canada at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and play several years in the Intercounty Baseball League with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Barrie Baycats. Spoljaric, who is a father of 5, lives with his family in Lisle, Ontario where he owns a commercial flooring business.
