Mo'Ne Davis is not just the only girl to play in the Taney Dragons, she became the first girl to pitch a complete-game (six-inning) shutout in a Little League World Series (LLWS) clinching game on Sunday.
She struck out six and allowed just three hits in six innings during Sunday’s Mid-Atlantic Regional final to lead the Taney Dragons to the LLWS by beating Delaware's Newark National 8-0.
The moment when Davis walks to the plate, Beyonce's anthem to women empowerment "Run The World" blares out.
No other Philadelphia team has so far been able to pull it off. People who know her game are not surprised. She throws a mean one at 70 miles per hour.
Needless to say she bowled everyone over with her game:
Mo'ne Davis is a stud!!! I'll be watching whenever she pitches for sure!! 3 hit shutout to go to the World Series!!! #baller— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) August 11, 2014
Love watching LLWS, especially when girls like Mo'ne Davis are out their dealin' on the mound just like the guys! Reminds me if my LL days.— Kristyn Sandberg (@KSandberg23) August 10, 2014
Her team mates are proud of her. “I end up striking them out and I look at my teammates and they’re laughing,” says Davis. “So I just laugh with them.”
“I’ll probably either be the first female in the MLB or in the NBA," she added.
But baseball isn’t the only sport she dabbles in. For someone who didn’t play any sports until age 6, she is a multi-talented athlete. She also plays basketball and soccer.
When Davis was younger, people would question her abilities because of her gender.
Well, three cheers for the little champ.
