Tomorrow evening, ECU and Redlands Community College will play an exhibition baseball game at Duncan High School as a part of "Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark."

Lane was shot and killed this August in Duncan by 3 teens who alledgedly did it "for the fun of it."

Lane attended and played at Redlands Community College for 2 years before transferring to ECU.

"We thought this would be a great way to tribute Chris Lane, and also to work with the community of Duncan, and make something special happen in that community as well," said ECU President, John Hargrave.

"Chris Lane Night at the Ballpark" is free for all who want to attend, but donations are being accepted for the Chris Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund.
