In honor of Mo’Ne Davis and all of Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons’ semi-final matchup against Las Vegas today in the Little League World Series, we thought we’d shed some light on this remarkable young woman.

Not only is Mo’Ne the first girl to toss a LLWS shutout, which she managed in her team’s regional game against Newark, but she’s also only the 18th girl to have ever played in the tournament, which has been held for 68 years.

She appeared on the cover of Sport’s Illustrated last week- the first Little League player to ever earn the honor.

Mo’Ne wants to play basketball at the University of Connecticut, and dreams of making it into the WNBA.

At age 7, Mo’Ne started playing baseball– and she currently throws a 70 MPH fastball!

She’s an HONOR STUDENT (you go, girl) at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia.

And, if this is not enough, she’s also proving to teenagers everywhere that it pays off to dream big and follow your passions!

Tune in to Mo’Ne’s game- 7:30 PM EST TONIGHT!

And, listen closely for her batting walk-up song…Beyonce’s Run the World(Girls).
