A funeral service for CMU Baseball player Ryan Teixeira will be held on Sunday in Pismo Beach, Calif. Teixeira passed away earlier this month after his six-month battle with leukemia.
Now with the Mavs already headed out west for a series with Point Loma, the team will be able to attend the service.
Head coach Chris Hanks said it was important for his guys to pay their respects to their late teammate.
"Given the circumstances with Ryan Teixeira and his funeral services I think it came at a good time," Hanks says. "It affords us the opportunity for our young men to go be with his family and celebrate Ryan’s life and say goodbye to him."
