For $75 per person, attendees will receive a VIP breakfast, VIP parking, a season parking ID and VIP field access. Those in attendance will watch training camp up close and personal, and they'll also have a chance to meet Giants legend George Martin.

The morning's events will run from 8 to 11 a.m., at UAlbany. There are a limited number of tickets. RSVP as soon as possible to Hudson Valley's Athletics Department, 629-7328.

Proceeds will benefit Hudson Valley's athletics programs.

In the 2000-01 academic year, Hudson Valley's ice hockey team won the NJCAA championship, the baseball team earned a berth in the NJCAA World Series and the football team won the Region III title. The women's basketball team earned a No. 1 national ranking and turned in a 24-3 record while the men's hoop squad competed in the Region III championship game. Hudson Valley's athletic teams combined to win 72 percent of their contests in 2000-01. Additionally, two Vikings earned Region III Player-of-the-Year status, 20 were named All-Region III performers, and 10 were honored with All-American status.
