Frank Dominick Cipriani (born April 14, 1941 in Buffalo, NY, d. June 2022 in West Seneca, NY) was a former professional baseball outfielder whose career extended from 1960 through 1966. He appeared in Major League Baseball for 13 games as a right fielder and pinch hitter for the Kansas City Athletics in 1961. Frank is an alumnus of Fordham University. Although Fordham had a long history of sending players to the majors, Frank Cipriani is one of the few Fordham men who came to the majors after 1960.

Frank's September 1961 MLB audition came in his sophomore year as a pro, after he had spent the minor-league season with the Shreveport Sports of the Double-A Southern Association. In his debut for the Athletics, he started in right field against Jim Kaat of the Minnesota Twins, and singled twice off Kaat in a 6–4 Kansas City win. He started in right field in ten more games through October 1 in his only MLB service.

As a big leaguer, Cipriani posted a .250 batting average (9-for-36) with two runs and two RBI in 20 games, without extra bases or stolen bases.
