With the 47th Round pick (1413th overall)

The Astros select 5'7" 180lb SS Joseph Carcone, out of New Hartford HS (NY).

He worked out for the Astros last week at Minute Maid. New Hartford coach Brian LaLonde:
“I know the scouts have been very impressed with him as a person, too. He’s a very honest, very humble kid, and he plays the game like he loves it. He plays the game with a passion.”

Carcone has signed with Le Moyne College in Syracuse. Le Moyne coach Steve Owens:
“Joe is one of the best all-around athletes in the CNY area on the baseball diamond as well as the football field. He possesses a strong arm and the ability to steal bases, the type of player that fits our profile of a lead-off hitter. Joe has proven to be a mentally tough individual in both sports he has played.”
