DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - Rainy weather has prompted the postponement of an exhibition baseball game honoring an Australian student who was on a baseball scholarship at an Oklahoma college when he was fatally shot.

Twenty-two-year-old Chris Lane was shot and killed as he jogged down a street in Duncan in August. Three teenagers have been charged in connection with the Melbourne native's death. One of them told investigators they shot Lane because they were bored.

Lane attended Redlands Community College in El Reno before transferring to East Central University in Ada. He was preparing for his senior season at East Central when he was killed.

An exhibition game between Redlands and East Central was set for Tuesday night, but it's been delayed until Oct. 24. Donations will be collected for a memorial scholarship fund.
