Mo’ne Davis, a 13-year-old team member of the Taney Youth Baseball Association of Philadelphia, became the first girl to throw a complete game shutout in the 67-year history of the Little League World Series. Emerging as one of the best sports stories of the summer, Mo’ne is a forced to be reckoned with.
Mo’Ne impresses us all with her 70-mile-per-hour fastball, and she is actually one of 18 females to ever play in Little League World Series history. And not only is Mo’ne a hit on the field, but she is an honor student, making her a hit in the classroom too. Praise for her talents have come from athletes and celebrities everywhere, including First Lady Mrs. Michelle Obama.
During a summer where we seem to need positive stories about our youth more than ever, we are proud of Mo’ne’s accomplishments and have no doubt that her talent will bring great opportunities her way.
