It was the 2014 Little League World Series like most others until everyone saw Mo’ne Davis play this magical game. Lets get over the gender issue and just say she was a team player and a darn good one. There was something special about her. The way she handled herself on and off the field. I was just in awe of her. She could pitch, she could field and she could hit.

Mo’ne played for the Mid-Atlantic Regional champions. She was born in South Philadelphia on June 24, 2001. Mo'ne Ikea Davis is here full name. Her parents are Lakeisha McLean and Lamar Davis. A program director at Marian Anderson Recreation Center in South Philadelphia noticed the natural athletic abilities of Davis in 2008. At seven-year’s-old she was able to throw perfect spirals with a football. Davis did so many things right, and so effortlessly, the director knew she was a natural athlete.
