David Gerald Criscione (born September 2, 1951 in Dunkirk, New York) is a former Major League Baseball catcher. He played seven games for the Baltimore Orioles in 1977, going 3-for-9 at the plate.

Criscione hit just one major league home run, but it was a walk-off home run against the Milwaukee Brewers on July 25, 1977. After Andrés Mora pinch-hit for starting catcher Dave Skaggs in the bottom of the 9th inning, Billy Smith tied the game at 3-3 with a single. In the top of the 10th, Criscione entered the game on defense. With the score still tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 11th, Criscione came to bat against Sam Hinds of the Brewers with one out and homered to win the game.[1]
