‘CHRIS LANE NIGHT AT THE BALLPARK’ SET FOR THURSDAY, OCT. 24, IN DUNCAN

ADA, Okla. – The rescheduled ‘Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark’ event will take place on Thursday, Oct. 24, in Duncan, Okla.

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 rainstorm forced postponement of the event on Oct. 15.

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.
