So it was just announced a really hot girl is on the cover of Sports Illustrated. So what?
Turns out the “hot” girl is 13-year-old baseball sensation Mo’ne Davis, pitcher (and infielder, and outfielder…) for the Philadelphia Taney Dragons Little League team. Last week, she recorded the first ever complete game shutout by a girl in Little League World Series history (4-0 vs. Nashville). And Sunday, she hit a single against the Pearland, Texas team to become only the sixth girl to record a hit in the Little League World Series and help the Dragons to the win.
Her success has drawn praise from the likes of Michelle Obama, Kevin Durant and Lil Wayne. Now she will become the first Little Leaguer—girl or boy—to grace the cover of the famous sports magazine.
We doubt it will be the last. The 5-4, 111-pound phenom hopes to play basketball for the national champion Connecticut Huskies someday. Let’s hope they…yes, “show her the Mo’ne.”
(Insert trombone playing wohn-wohhhnnn here.)
Catch Mo’ne again Wednesday against Las Vegas—the one game standing in the way of the Dragons’ U.S. Championship game.
