Cirillo attended Providence High School where he excelled in both baseball and basketball.

The same year, he added 198 hits (also a career-high) with 15 home runs and 88 RBI. His most productive season came in 2000 with the Colorado Rockies, when he posted career-highs in RBI (115), runs (111), and doubles (53); finished with 195 hits; and matched his personal-best .326 average. Cirillo also played for the Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, Minnesota Twins, and the Arizona Diamondbacks during his 14 year pro career.
