Picnic to precede July 11th game vs. the Lowell Spinners

The Hudson Valley Community College Alumni Association will host an alumni night at the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium on Sunday, July 11, when the Tri-City ValleyCats take on the Boston Red Sox-affiliated Lowell Spinners.

A picnic, featuring chicken, hot dogs, and hamburgers, for alumni, their families and friends will begin at 4 p.m.; game time is 6 p.m.

Five alumni will have the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at the game, and all alumni who attend will be entered into a drawing to win one of five baseballs autographed by Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte, former New York Yankees who now play for the ValleyCats' parent club, the Houston Astros.

Tickets for the picnic and either grandstand, reserved and premium seats for the game range in price from $17 to $20 for adults and $13 and $16 for children 12 years old and under. Tickets for the game only range in price from $3.50 to $6.50 for both adults and children. For more information or to make a reservation by Thursday, July 8, please call (518) 629-8077 or visit
