No longer is "throw like a girl" a demeaning thing to say to a girl. Little League baseball pitcher, Mo'ne Davis, can fire a baseball at 70 miles per hour accurately across home plate and Win! The thirteen year old teen-ager is the only girl on the Philadephia Taney Dragons, only the fourth American girl ever to play in the Little League World Series, and the first since 2004.

She made history when she became the first girl to throw a shutout in Little League World Series history, allowing only two hits, striking out eight batters and walking none against Tennessee. 
Her team plays again tonight. Go Mo'ne!!
UPDATE: Mo'ne's team plays tonight, Thursday, Aug 21, against the Chicago team. This game will determine if her team will play in the World Championship game scheduled for Saturday. Best wishes to ALL the kids!!
