Angelo Dominic "Archi" Cianfrocco (born October 6, 1966 in Rome, New York) is a former professional baseball player. He played all or part of seven seasons in Major League Baseball, mostly at first and third base, from 1992-1998.

Cianfrocco was drafted twice, first by Pittsburgh Pirates in 11th Round (259th overall) of the 1986 amateur entry draft, then by the Montreal Expos in 5th Round (122nd overall) of the 1987 amateur entry draft. He elected not to sign with Pittsburgh, but after one season of college baseball at Purdue,[1] he signed with Montreal in 1987. The Expos traded him to the San Diego Padres in 1993 for pitcher Tim Scott. After his MLB career, Cianfrocco played a season in Japan for the Seibu Lions
