Staten Island, NY | Head Coach Michael Mauro and the College of Staten Island baseball program is proud to announce the celebratory signing of Tottenville High School senior Nick Falcone.  A genuine utility man who has played every position while with the Pirates, Falcone will be looking to bring that versatility to the Dolphins in 2018-19.

Falcone is eager to get started with the Dolphins, fresh off of a very solid high school career.  He knows that he can add to a deep CSI lineup and a budding new cast. 

“CSI is a local school so I can travel back and forth from home,” Falcone said on why he chose CSI.”  “The baseball program does very well so it’s a win-win situation for me.”

Falcone’s versatility is his strength, as are his leadership abilities, according to the coaching staff.  He will be expected to patrol the outfield while in the blue and white.  During his time with the Pirates, he was awarded a Silver Slugger award, Golden Glove award and was given Tottenville’s Passion & Spirit Award as well.  He knows he can do the small things to help contribute to the Dolphins’ championship pedigree and that the school can do the same for him, making him a better player.

“I feel that the current CSI program is going to impact me just as much as I will impact the team,” he said.  “CSI will help me be the student I always wanted to be knowing that I have a great baseball family to look forward too as well.”

Coach Mauro is excited to have Falcone join a large group of 2018 recruits.  “Nick is an outfielder with tremendous speed and he has a great eye at the plate with some gap power,” he said.  “His greatest attribute will be his speed and strong arm. We are very excited to have Nick join our family. He will have a great career here at CSI.”

Son of Vincent and Francine Falcone, both of Nick’s older brothers, Vincent and Michael, also played baseball while at Tottenville.

The CSI Baseball program is fresh off of another terrific season that concluded with a fourth-straight CUNYAC title.  The team graduated a crop of six seniors and are bringing in one of their biggest recruiting classes in time for 2018-19.
