Joe Carbone enters his 10th season as head coach of the SUNY Canton baseball program for the 2018-19 academic year. Carbone led the Roos to a program record of 15 wins during the 2014 season that included five straight victories. During 2015 the team won 14 games while finishing in fourth place in the inaugural Empire 8.

Carbone and Assistant Coach, Victor Rivera were key to the creation of the inaugural Clemente Cup in Puerto Rico to open the 2016 season. This event brought over 2 million dollars to Puerto Rico. The tournament is named after the late Roberto Clemente; Carbone is currently organizing the second Clemente Cup to open his 2020 season.

When hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20, plunging all of its 3.4 million residents into a desperate humanitarian crisis, Carbone began fundraising efforts to help aid in emergency relief. He was key in raising $1000’s of dollars that went directly to relief efforts. He and Rivera have been to PR three times in the last 9 months to personally deliver goods and offer their service to the most devastated areas. They have made charity their focal point over the past year. Carbone has the same passion for humanitarianism as the late Roberto Clemente and continues to put forth the effort, care, and concern.

Carbone received the 2018 SUNY Canton Making-A-Award, and has been named the Sunrise Conference Coach of the Year two times. He served as president, and head coach of the Knapps Station Baseball Program in Norfolk NY for 15 years. In that capacity, he recruited, trained, and coached youth teams; coordinated fundraising efforts, organized, and conducted numerous training clinics throughout the area. Carbone was the assistant coach with the Norwood-Norfolk Central School varsity baseball team for two years; he was also involved with the Youth Summer Baseball Camp at Clarkson University for nine years.

Carbone earned an Associate’s degree with honors in Criminal Justice from SUNY Canton, and a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology -Summa-Cum-Laude from Plattsburgh State and is a retired corrections officer.
