In 1999 Urbani ended his career, pitching for the Italian baseball team of the Rimini Pirates as an Italian-American (oriundo) player. He led the team to a 7 games Championship Series win against Nettuno : in that season Urbani threw the fifth perfect game in the history of the Italian baseball (against the San Marino team), and the only one in the 40 years history of the Rimini team.
