Archi Cianfrocco Born

As you might guess from his name Angelo Dominic "Archi" Cianfrocco was born in Rome. But no, not that Rome. Archi was born in this Rome, in beautiful upstate New York. That isn't to take anything away from Archi. He had a seven year career with the Expos and Padres, and altough Archi never hit much (.241 lifetime) he hung around--and made more than one and a half million dollars over those seven years--by playing quite literally, every position. While Archi never appeared on the hill, given he has at least one game everywhere else, I don't doubt he would've given it a go to the best of his ability. In fact, if I'm not mistaken "Cianfrocco" is Italian for "utility man."
