Geege Schuman stashed this in Baseball
First girl ever to do so!
There is a teenage Little League pitcher slaying dragons, demons and pimple-faced boys with a curve ball and her name is Mo’Ne Davis. The 13-year-old is causing so many outs with her 70 mile-per-hour pitches that her male competitors don’t know how to compete or what to do besides throw down their bats in disgust.
Her story was covered last night on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Check out the videos of this phenom at the link.
that gave me goosebumps!!
Me too. And not only is she a great pitcher but she's also a great hitter!
PLUS she's smart:
what a badass!!
She is wise beyond her years.
Right-hander Mo'ne Davis of Philadelphia's Taney Dragons threw a complete-game shutout in her team's first game of the Little League World Series on Friday afternoon. They beat the team from Nashville 4-0.
As you can see in the graphic above, the 13-year-old Davis allowed two hits in her six shutout innings, striking out eight. She did not walk a batter and is the first female pitcher to throw a shutout in the Little League World Series.
Davis pitched so well that she caught the attention of a few big leaguers:
Watching Mo'Ne Davis! She is an absolute stud. Awesome mechanics and great feel for pitching! #LLWS
Props to Mo'ne Davis for dealing today. Awesome performance #LLWS
Davis threw a complete-game shutout against the team from Newark in the Regionals to punch Taney's ticket to Williamsport. She is also the first female to throw a shutout in Regional play.
Davis is the fourth American girl to compete at the Little League World Series.
She has a lot of maturity:
She throws 70mph fastballs. At 13. But she's ALSO a great hitter!
