Paul Thomas Mirabella (born March 20, 1954 in Belleville, New Jersey) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He attended Parsippany High School in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey, then went on to Montclair State University. He was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 1st round (21st) of the 1976 MLB January Draft-Secondary Phase from Montclair State University (Montclair, NJ).

Paul, who threw left-handed, played all or part of thirteen seasons in Major League Baseball for the Texas Rangers (1978 and 1982), New York Yankees (1979), Toronto Blue Jays (1980–81), Baltimore Orioles (1983), Seattle Mariners (1984–86) and Milwaukee Brewers (1987–90). He particularly enjoyed his time with the Yankees, as he grew up a Yankee fan.

Overall, Paul appeared in 298 games, including 33 as a starting pitcher, 3 of which were complete games, including 1 shutout.

In his Letters from Home Plate response, Paul lists Mickey Mantle and Jim Palmer as his favorite players growing up, George Brett as the toughest hitter he ever faced, and Yankee Stadium as his favorite park to play in. His favorite teammate was Danny Darwin.
