Dino Restelli

Dino Paolo Restelli (September 23, 1924 – August 8, 2006) was a Major League Baseball center fielder and right-handed batter who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1949 and 1951.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri to Italian immigrants, he grew up in San Francisco, California and attended Santa Clara University. After World War II service in the United States Army, he became a baseball player with the San Francisco Seals, who traded him to the Pirates in June 1949.

Restelli achieved a measure of fame with the Pirates, when he hit a record seven home runs in his first ten games. He finished his rookie season with 12 home runs in 72 games.

After his brief baseball career, he became a San Francisco police officer. He later settled in nearby San Carlos, California.
