DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) — An exhibition baseball game will honor an Australian who was in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship when he was shot and killed.

Twenty-two-year-old Chris Lane was shot and killed as he was jogging down a street in Duncan in August. Three teenagers have been charged in connection with the Melbourne native's death.

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.

Players from Redlands and East Central will play an exhibition game at Duncan High School on Tuesday at 5 p.m. Admission is free, but donations will be collected for the Chris Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund.
