South Williamsport, PA - Taney Little League’s Mo’ne Davis, no stranger to the spotlight in her own right, returned to Williamsport on Friday to celebrate an historic achievement. But this time, the first female Little Leaguer to win a Baseball World Series game and her 2014 Mid-Atlantic Region Champion teammates were in town to cheer on their fellow Pennsylvanians.

Hailing from Lewisberry, Pa., Red Land Little League advanced through district, state, and regional tournaments this year to earn the Mid-Atlantic crown. After Taney and Davis advanced to Williamsport last year, 2015 marks the first time since 1960-61 that the Keystone State has been represented in back-to-back Series.

“They supported us [at the 2014 World Series],” said Davis of her return trip to Williamsport. “It’s pretty cool to return the favor and wish them the best luck you could have.”

Despite never meeting Red Lands on the field at the state tournament in 2014, Davis and her teammates have found a common bond with the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Region Champs – with Davis hoping that her experience might be able to help out this year’s Pennsylvania squad.

“Make sure you interact with the other teams and get to know them more, because you might not get to see them again,” she said.

“I would tell them to have as much fun as you can, and to interact with the other teams. Time here will go by super fast.”
