    Congratulations to the Canes Organization for such a tremendous accomplishment. Jeff Petty has worked very hard to put together such a talented group of kids. The pitching staff dominated the entire week at East Cobb. This championship is something the boys will remember for years to come as everyone contributed in the title run.
