"One thing about Gino," Tampa manager Marc Bombard told The Star-News, "he's a battler. When he gets his curveball over (the plate) then you know right away he's going to have a good night. He's extremely tough when his curve is working."

Gino Michael Minutelli (born May 23, 1964 in Wilmington, DE) is a retired Major League Baseball pitcher. He played during three seasons (1990, 91, 93) at the major league level for the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants. He was signed by the Reds as an amateur free agent in 1982.

Gino Minutelli's professional career started at the urging of a coach for an independent Northwest League team, the Tri-City Triplets, according to The Los Angeles Times. Gino, then a delivery truck driver, took the coach up on the offer - and he made the team, The Times wrote. "I knew I had something (to contribute to baseball)," Minutelli told The Times as his career got underway in 1985. "Someone finally found it."

Gino played his first professional season with their Class-A (Short Season) Tri-City Triplets in 1985, and his last with the Atlanta Braves' Triple-A Richmond Braves in 1995.
