OKLAHOMA CITY (April 30, 2013) – Due to the poor weather forecast for Thursday, the “Dobson Day” ceremony honoring retiring OC professor and coach Max Dobson has been postponed.

The ceremony had been scheduled to be held before OC’s home baseball finale against Newman (Kan.) at Dobson Field on Thursday, but with wet, chilly weather expected that day, it was decided to postpone the event.

Instead, a reception and retirement party for Dobson has been scheduled for 4 p.m. at the Payne Athletic Center lobby. Plans call for Dobson to be honored at the field that bears his name at some point during the 2014 baseball season.

Dobson began teaching at Oklahoma Christian in 1966. He has spent time as baseball coach, women’s basketball coach and athletic director at OC in addition to his duties as a physical education professor. He guided the baseball team to a third-place finish in the 1972 NAIA World Series.
