Peter Frank "Pete" Falcone(born October 1, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York), is a left-handed former professional baseball player who pitched in the Major Leagues from 197584.

On May 1, 1980, Falcone tied a Major League record by striking out the first six batters of the game, versus the Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets lost 2–1, as Falcone pitched 7 innings with 8 strikeouts.

Falcone was especially good at not allowing hits when runners were in scoring position, keeping batters in such such circumstances to a .210 batting average in 1979, a .220 batting average in 1981, and a .211 batting average in 1982.

Pete was the last Met before Johan Santana to hit a homerun and throw a complete game shutout. Johan did that on July 6, 2010.
