Mo'ne Davis could be in a class by herself in the 2014 LLWS

Williamsport, PA - Yesterday, CBS News wrote an article with the headline "Girl takes electric fastball to Little League's big show." It continued by pointing out that of nearly 9,000 kids to ever play in the Little League World Series, only 18 are girls, and this year, one American pitcher could wind up in a class by herself, CBS News' Elaine Quijano reports.

Mo'ne Davis' team, the Taney Dragons, made history as Philadelphia's first team to get to the World Series, and if they win, it would be another first for the history books.

Thirteen-year-old Mo'ne threw a six-strikeout, complete-game shutout at Sunday's regional championships.

Davis is only the fourth American girl to ever make it to the World Series. She regularly shuts down hitters with her electric fastball.
She thinks it's a big deal for her to be out there.
"Probably like a couple of years from now, there'll be a lot of girls here, and it won't be just like all boys, so they'll have to build like another dorm for girls," she said.
Though she wants to see more girls play baseball, she's not going to dwell on her gender.
