Little League World Series Star Graces The Cover Of Sports Illustrated

As a female, Mo’Ne Davis is taking all of the Little League World Series players she’s faced to school with an impressive arsenal of pitches at a very young age.

Davis can now brag to her friends even more, because she has graced the latest cover of Sports Illustrated.

She just might be the biggest stand out star this summer.

At 13-years-old Davis packs a 70 mph fastball with a change up to confuse the young hitters. Hell I don’t even think I could through 70 and I’m 26. Her first game of the series included a two-hit shutout. Now the Taney Dragons are one step closer to a championship, all with the leadership of a female on the big stage.

Catch her next performance Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
