Shawn Richard Hill (born April 28, 1981 in Mississauga, Ontario) is a Canadian Major League Baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. He was part of Team Canada at the 2004 Summer Olympics, which finished in fourth place. He is married to the former Ashley Jenne of Melbourne, Florida. He and his wife reside in Viera, Florida in the off-season. Hill played high-school baseball at Bishop Reding Catholic Secondary School in Milton, Ontario, Canada.

Hill was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 33rd round, 1,012nd overall, of the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign. He was drafted the next year by the Montreal Expos in the sixth round, 165th overall. In 82 minor league games, Hill has a 32-24 record.

Ironically, the game was played at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where 21 of Montreal's home games were played in 2004.
