Mario Peter Picone (born July 5, 1926, at Brooklyn, New York) is a retired American professional baseball player, a right-handed pitcher whose 13-year (1944–1956) career was marked by stints in Major League Baseball with the 1947, 1952 and 1954 New York Giants and the 1954 Cincinnati Redlegs. Picone appeared in 13 Major League games during those trials, three as a starting pitcher, and permitted 43 hits, 28 earned runs and 25 bases on balls, with 11 strikeouts, in 40 innings of work.

Two of his starting assignments accounted for the two losses on his MLB résumé. On September 27, 1952, he lasted eight innings against the Philadelphia Phillies at the Polo Grounds, but gave up six runs, five earned, in a 7–3 defeat.[1] Then, on June 13, 1954, in his first appearance for Cincinnati, he started against his hometown Brooklyn Dodgers at Crosley Field but pitched only 4⅓ innings and gave up five more earned runs, including home runs to Duke Snider and Jim Gilliam.[2] Brooklyn eventually won, 14–2.

During his minor league career, Picone won 129 games (losing 98) and won 14 or more games five times.[3]
