A native of East York, outfielder Rob Butler would sign with his hometown Toronto Blue Jays as an amateur free agent in 1990. Butler would make his MLB debut with the Blue Jays during the 1993 season, during which the Blue Jays won the World Series. This gives Butler the distinction of being the only Canadian player to have won a World Series with the Blue Jays. Prior to the 1995 season, the Blue Jays would trade Butler to the Philadelphia Phillies. While Butler would spend the majority of his time with the Phillies in their minor league system, he would spend a chunk of the 1997 season with the big club, appearing in 43 games, batting .292, with 9 doubles, 1 triple and 13 RBIs. After spending the 1998 season in the Houston Astros minor league system, Butler would return to the Blue Jays in 1999 as a free agent for what would be his final stint in the Big Leagues. After his MLB career, Butler would join his brother Rich and former Blue Jays teammate Paul Spoljaric on the Toronto Maple Leafs of the Intercounty Baseball League, with whom he\’d play with until 2005. In retirement, Butler served as a coach with the Canadian National Junior team and currently runs the Butler Baseball Academy in Ajax alongside his brother Rich.
