Mo’ne Davis doesn’t just beat the boys in Little League, she shuts them down. She’s throwing strikes and taking names, leading her Philadelphia Little League team past Nashville in the Little League World Series. Did I mention she pitched a shutout? For the second game IN A ROW?!
The 13-year-old pitcher is already a powerhouse, shutting down players at bat with 70 mile-per-hour fastballs. Davis is only the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series, and she’s the first American girl since 2004. Davis leads the Taney Dragons, who are the first team from Philly to make it to the Series.
Go get ’em girl. Watch her talk about the back to back shutouts below via ESPN.
