"I am excited for the opportunity to join the Staten Island FerryHawks organization and lead Hawk City for the 2024 season. Our goal is to build a championship caliber team that is devoted to our city on and off the field. I know and feel the passion of Staten Island and the New York sports community and will work tirelessly to make our community proud of the FerryHawks for 2024 and into the future," said Minicozzi.

“Mark’s teams score runs and play exciting, high-octane baseball.  He knows the Atlantic League and independent baseball very well and has a proven track record to recruit and develop talented players. We are excited to introduce him to our fans and engage him with the Staten Island community.” said FerryHawks President and Co-Owner, Eric Shuffler.
