Little League World Series: Mo’ne Davis Is First Girl To Throw Shutout Game
Wow. This is a prime example of how girl power leads to nothing but greatness.
It happened on Friday, Aug. 15, when the Philadelphia Taney Dragons played against Tennessee in Willamsport, Pa. That’s when Mo’ne shocked and thrilled Little League fans everywhere by throwing the first-ever shutout game pitched by a girl, reports People.
Because of Mo’ne’s hard work, Tennessee was not able to score once — which led the Taney Dragons to win the game, 4-0.
“Throwing 70 miles an hour – that’s throwing like a girl,” Mo’ne told CBS News, flaunting her confidence.
Not only was Mo’ne the first girl ever to throw a Little League World Series shutout game, she is only the fourth girl to ever make it to the series.
And the best part? Baseball is not even Mo’ne’s primary sport to play — it’s actually basketball.
Hey, at least she has something to fall back on now!
