Video: LLWS Star Mo’Ne Davis Throws Perfect Pitch at Dodger Stadium

Mo'ne Davis looked right at home on a big league mound




    If you don’t know who Mo’ne Davis is by now you must’ve been living in an al Qaeda cave for the past month.

    My mom even knows who the pint-sized, pitching phenom is and she hasn’t seen a baseball game since I was playing Little League.

    LA to Welcome Back Vin Scully, the NFL, and the Olympics?

    [LA] LA to Welcome Back Vin Scully, the NFL, and the Olympics?
    Will the NFL be in LA within the next 5 years? Is LA going to host the Olympics again? Who should get the next statue in front of Staples Center? Tim Cates from AM 570 KLAC and Andy Kamenetzky from sit down with Fred Roggin to answer these questions and more on this week’s edition of Rapid Fire. Originally aired on Going Roggin August 3, 2014.

    For those who don’t, Mo’ne pitched for the Taney Dragons team out of Philadelphia during the Little League World Series, and became the first girl to throw a shutout in the tournament.

    But, more than that, it was during interviews that she became, in my opinion, the epitome of 13-year-old awesomeness. She’s adorable, she’s affable and she’s more about team, not herself.

    [LA] NewsConference: The Return of Vin Scully
    Vin Scully has been in the Dodger announcing booth since 1950, the longest tenure of any broadcaster with a single team in professional sports. This week, he announced he would be back for another season in 2015. (Published Friday, Aug. 1, 2014)

    Sports Illustrated put her on the cover, for God’s sake. 

    If I was Yasiel Puig I would want her autograph, too.



    So, in her latest cross country trek as the unofficial ambassador of girl power, Mo’ne appeared at Dodger Stadium Tuesday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

    No need to get squeamish. This is Mo’ne Davis we’re talking about.

    She stood just on the grass in front of the mound in her Dodger jersey, Dodger hat and black and pink Nike’s, did a little shoulder shimmy and fired a perfect strike.

    First female Major League pitcher, first female NBA player, first female President, whatever she decides to do with her unbelievably bright future, we all should be on Team Mo’ne.
