Weather forces rescheduling of memorial game

DUNCAN — Rainy weather resulted in the postponement of “Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark” to Thursday, Oct. 24, at 5 p.m.

The decision was made Tuesday afternoon.

The event at the Duncan High School baseball field was to feature East Central University and Redlands Community College in a scrimmage. Lane, who was tragically killed this past August, played for Redlands and East Central.

The two teams have traditionally played each other as part of their fall seasons, but decided to play this year’s game in Duncan as a means of bringing together the communities affected by Lane’s death.

Admission to the reschedule game will be free, with donations collected and concessions sold to raise money for a scholarship in Lane’s memory.

Note: The article originally stated that the game would be played Oct. 27. It is actually Oct. 24. The Duncan Banner regrets the error.
