Jelic was originally drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the second round of the 1985 Major League Baseball Draft out of the University of Pittsburgh. Jelic not only played baseball in college, was primarily a Quarterback but was also a punter on the University of Pittsburgh football team.[2]

He was traded to the Mets with David Cone on March 27, 1987 for Rick Anderson, Mauro Gozzo and Ed Hearn. After his brief stint with the Mets in 1990, Jelic signed with the San Diego Padres, never reaching the majors in three seasons in their organization.
