While the New York Giants are currently working hard at their OTA off-season workouts, they are also making contributions in the community. Most notably, Landon Collins is hosting a charity softball game, pitting former Big Blue players of the Super Bowl XLII and XLVII against current Giants players.
"It's a big thing for everybody to come out to get to meet some players to know that we love them as much as they love us and just to get some interaction," Collins said. "Because when we're on the football field, there's a big barrier up and you can't get near us, we're not really focused on the fans and we're just trying to play football. But definitely trying to make some great causes for this charity event for the Jay Fund and just make it a big thing."
The softball game will be played at Palisades Credit Union Park in Pomona, N.Y. The game starts at 8 p.m. with the gates opening at 5. Dodgeball starts at 6, followed by a home run derby at 7. Tickets are $20 and can be bought at this link. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund.
Almost half-a-dozen Giants players will also be holding their own football camps this week. Brandon Marshall and Justin Pugh are just two of the players hosting camps for youngsters this weekend.
