35 – 3 is the correct ACHS Pirate record. And to think the AJC once covered “Dixie Like the Dew” now only covers the City of Atlanta. How the mighty have fallen. Yes, 2AA is the King of the Hill this year in 2- AA baseball; Pirates, Bears & Herons, best in the state.

Cole Dowling gave 100 percent, batting .500 in the state championship series. He found the bears fought til the last pitch was thrown
