The phrase “you throw like a girl” suddenly has a new—and positive—meaning, thanks to 13-year-old Mo’Ne Davis.
On Sunday, the baseball star pitched her team into the 2014 Little League World Series with a three-hit shutout. Her incredible 70-mph fastball secured the Mid-Atlantic spot for her Taney Dragons of Philadelphia, one of the top 16 teams.
Davis is the first girl to throw a complete game shutout to clinch a World Series berth. She will be the 18th girl to play in the LLWS when the competition begins Thursday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Davis says she dreams of playing in the WNBA or MLB. In an interview with ESPN, she challenges Clayton Kershaw to a pitch-off. Based on her arm and confidence, we think she’s got a shot.
Check out the video below for highlights of Davis’s amazing performance.
