Biography

American pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) who played for four seasons. He pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals (1993-1996 midseason), before joining the Detroit Tigers for the rest of the 1996 season.

In 1999, Urbani ended his professional career while pitching for the Rimini BBC of the Italian Baseball League as an Italian-American (oriundo) player.

In that summer, Urbani also played as a starting pitcher for the Italy national baseball team in the pre-Olympic European tournament. He then helped Italy earn the silver medal at the 1999 European Baseball Championship, pitching eight scoreless innings on a two-hit, 14-strikeout effort over the France squad.

Following his baseball career, Urbani briefly worked in real estate. He later established a company called Lefty Right Sports based in Santa Cruz, California, and invented a device called the Curveball Trainer, which teaches young players how to pitch a curveball.
