The postponed baseball game in tribute to the 22 year old Australian player shot and killed in Duncan will be played this afternoon at Duncan High School's ball field.

East Central University and Redlands Community College will take to the diamond at 5 p.m. to celebrate the life of Chris Lane.

Lane was an honor student and had a college baseball scholarship to East Central University.

He played his first two years of baseball at Redlands.

He was jogging in Duncan in August when police say he was killed in a drive by shooting from a car occupied by three teens.

There is no charge to watch the game, but donations will be accepted to go to the Chris Lane Memorial Scholarship.

Concession stand proceeds will also go to the scholarship.
