Mo’ne Davis: The Athlete Who Pitched a Shut Out
Because she’s the first ever girl to win in the Little League world series and she PITCHED A SHUT OUT.
Mo’ne Ikea Davis “was the first girl to earn a win and to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history. She was the 18th girl overall to play, the sixth to get a hit, and the first African-American girl to play in the Little League World Series. She was also the first Little League baseball player to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated as a Little League player.”
All that was from her Wiki page and she’s only 15 and basketball is her favorite sport.
I know, right?
So be prepared for her world domination to continue, especially since this dynamo signed with the Harlem Globetrotters last year, offered a spot if she wants it when she’s done with college. .
She is training away and dreams one day of being on UConn’s team. Which, we think has a good shot of happening.
I know, how cool!
This Philly girl has been going for it and we can’t wait to see how much more she accomplishes.
