Gerald William Arrigo (born June 12, 1941) is a former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher pitching for the Minnesota Twins, Cincinnati Reds, New York Mets, and Chicago White Sox from 1961 to 1970.

He was a graduate of Harrison High School in Chicago.[1]

Before the 1960 season, Arrigo was signed as an amateur free agent by the Chicago White Sox, but was promptly drafted away from them by the Minnesota Twins in the 1960 first-year draft.[1][2]

Gerry played his first game with the Twins on June 12, 1961, pitching an 113 innings in the start, giving up three earned runs in the second inning. He was credited with the loss.[1][2]

Arrigo threw two one-hit games in his career. On June 26, 1964, he had a no hitter going against the White Sox until Mike Hershberger hit a single to center in the top of the 9th inning. The second game on April 29, 1967, however, had no anticipation of a no-hitter as Arrigo gave up the only hit of the game to the New York Mets' Jerry Grote in the first inning.[3]

He had his best all-around year in 1968 for the Cincinnati Reds. Appearing in 36 games (31 as starting pitcher) with 205 innings, his record was 12–10 with a 3.33 earned run average with 140 strikeouts and five complete games.[1]

Arrigo would go on to play his final major league game with the Chicago White Sox on June 5, 1970.[1][2]
