A large contingent of players and coaches with ties to the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region will be a part of history on Saturday.

That’s because lax will be the inaugural event in the nation’s newest NFL venue as the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., makes its debut on Saturday, April by hosting the Konica Minolta Big City Classic.
