STATEMENT FROM GEORGIA TECH ATHLETIC DIRECTOR DAN RADAKOVICH

The tragic news of Michael Hutts’ sudden passing can not be justified in words.

Our deepest heartfelt condolences go out to his parents and the entire Hutts family.

Head baseball coach Danny Hall and his staff will work closely with our players during this very difficult time. It is important that we offer these young men all the support that they need.
