Staten Island author Andrew Paul Mele, who recently released a book titled, ‘Ceasars of the Diamond,’ will appear for a book signing Sunday in the Staten Island Sports Hall of Fame room at the CYO-MIV Center in Prince’s Bay. Mele, an Annadale resident, penned the book in honor of Italian Americans in Major League Baseball between the years 1897-2017.

Among the players/coaches Mele refers to are seven Staten Island Sports Hall of Famers, including Chick Genovese, George Genovese, Sonny Ruberto, Frank Menechino, John Franco, Matt Galante and Larry Napp (originally Napolitano). Napp was an umpire. Another Staten Islander who made the book, but isn’t a member of the SISHOF is Tom Gregorio.
