Alfred Edward Cuccinello (August 26, 1914 - March 29, 2004) was a second baseman in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the New York Giants during the 1935 season. Listed at 5' 10," 165 lb., Cuccinello batted and threw right-handed. He was the younger brother of Tony Cuccinello and uncle of Sam Mele. A native of Long Island City, New York, Cuccinello appeared in 54 games for the 1935 Giants. On May 30 of that year, he hit a home run in his first game at the Polo Grounds, and on July 5, he and his brother Al -for the Brooklyn Dodgers- each hit home runs in the same game, joining a select club that includes Aaron and Bret Boone, Cesar and Felipe Crespo, Hector and Jose Cruz, Dom and Joe DiMaggio, Graig and Jim Nettles, and Rick and Wes Ferrell.show more
