Georgia Tech and the Yellow Jacket baseball team paid tribute to teammate Michael Hutts prior to Saturday’s first game against No. 1-ranked Miami at Russ Chandler Stadium.
Hutts, a junior pitcher from Dunwoody, Ga., died Friday in Atlanta.
A number 40, Hutts’ jersey number, was painted on the field near the third-base line. His number was also put on every Yellow Jacket players’ cap.
Prior to the game against the Hurricanes — the first of two games against Miami on Saturday — everyone in attendance paid tribute with a moment of silence. Every fan entering the stadium was provided with a yellow ribbon in Hutts’ honor.
