Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark re-set for Oct. 24

Ada — Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark has been postponed due to weather and has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24.

The event will be held at Duncan High School’s baseball field and will feature an exhibition baseball event between East Central University and Redlands Community College. The festivities begin at 5 p.m.

A late Tuesday morning rainstorm forced postponement of the event.

Lane’s life was tragically cut short in Duncan in August. The 22-year-old Australian baseball player was preparing for his senior season at ECU, playing catcher one year with the Tigers as a junior and, prior to that, spending two seasons playing at Redlands in El Reno.

Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark is free, but donations are being accepted to go to the Chris Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund. Concessions, donated by Arvest Bank in Duncan and the Duncan Regional Hospital, will be sold by a number of community volunteers at the event as proceeds will go toward the scholarship fund as well.
