Georgia Tech Cancels Game to Attend Hutts' Funeral

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech canceled Tuesday's game at Georgia Southern so the team can attend the funeral of Michael Hutts, a pitcher who was found dead in his apartment on Friday.

No decision has been made about rescheduling the game.

The Yellow Jackets will play Wednesday afternoon at Georgia Southern Wednesday as scheduled.

A memorial service for the 21-year-old Hutts will be held at All Saints Catholic Church in Dunwoody tomorrow morning.

The family will receive friends in the church following the interment at Arlington Memorial Park.

Hutts grew up in Dunwoody, an Atlanta suburb, and graduated from The Wesleyan School in nearby Norcross. In college, he was on the dean's list with a management major last year.

According to coroner's investigator Mike Alsip, there was no obvious violent cause of death. Corner's investigator Laura Salm indicated that her department usually needs two to four weeks before releasing its report.

Toxicology tests were sent Saturday morning to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which in turn uses a privately owned third-party lab to determine the cause of death.
