Mo'Ne Davis is a 13-year-old young lady from Philadelphia. She is in 8th grade, and recently led her Little League team to the World Series by striking out six batters on Sunday! Mo'Ne is only the 18th female to ever play in the LLWS, and the only girl on her team. She says the other players often underestimate her...until they see her 70 MPH fastball!
She she has been playing baseball since she was 7 years old. Though she has often been encouraged to play softball instead, Davis says baseball is the only sport she's interested in, and has no plans to switch.
