Michael Desport Romano (born March 3, 1972 in New Orleans, LA) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who played for one season - playing for the Toronto Blue Jays for three games during its 1999 season.

After leaving MLB, Mike Romano threw the first postseason no-hitter in Mexican League history. On August 18, 2001, he tossed the gem for the Saltillo Saraperos against the Monterrey Sultans. He had thrown a 7-inning no-hitter against Monterrey on May 20th of that same year.

He was pitching for the Hiroshima Carp in 2005. Hailing from New Orleans, LA, he took emergency leave from the team on August 31st due to Hurricane Katrina. His wife and two kids evacuated the area safely, but his house was destroyed and his brother-in-law and his wife's uncle were missing. They were eventually located and no family members were lost, though many of their belongings were. Romano was 5-4 with one save and a 4.54 ERA for Hiroshima in 2005. He subsequently signed with the SK Wyverns for 2007.

Mike is also a member of the Tulane University Athletics Hall of Fame. Since retiring, he runs RBI Baseball Academy in Covington, LA.
