13-Year-Old Mo'ne Davis Has Something To Say And You Need To Hear It
What does "throw like a girl" even mean?
"Dear United States of America, I'm 13-years-old. This summer was the best summer of my young life."
Davis, a 13-year-old baseball player from Philadelphia, is this year's fiercest little female in the sports field. Not only was she the first girl to ever pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series, Mo'ne is the first African-American girl out of only 18 girls to ever play in the Little League World Series. Not to mention she's also the first Little Leaguer to make the Sports Illustrated cover.
Now she's got something important to say and we all need to hear it.
With the support of her family and a flaming passion for sports, Mo'ne stands for girls who want to play with the boys and wants to be a rolemodel for people, young and old.
Defiant of all gender stereotypes, this young athlete proves there shouldn't be any preconceptions when it comes to sports.
"I throw 70-mph. That's throwing like a girl," Mo'ne Davis says in her open letter to America.
