Dino Restelli, who played in 93 games in the major leagues, died on Aug. 8, 2006 in San Carlos, Calif.
Restelli had played for the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League before making some noise with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1949. He had just 232 at-bats that season in the majors, but he hit 12 home runs and drove in 40 runs.
Restelli, however, did not appear in the major leagues in 1950 and played only briefly -- in 21 games -- in 1951. The Senators purchased his contract from Pittsburgh in September 1951 and Cleveland purchased his contract from Washington in December of that year.
He never appeared again at the major league level.
