It’s been almost a year since a 13-years-old girl from South Philly became a household name after pitching the Taney Dragons to the Little League World Series. Mo’ne Davis’ cool demeanor and electric fastball took the Taney Dragons on a wild two-week ride last August that captivated the nation.
While Davis is no longer playing with the Taney Dragons, the past year has been filled with highlights and accolades on and off the field.
PERFECT FIRST PITCH
Queen Latifah introduced Davis, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium in September of last year. As usual, she delivered a strike.
MO’NE CHATS WITH STEVE HARVEY
Davis admitted to watching Johnson Family Vacation, which elicited a high five from the movie’s co-star and talk show host Steve Harvey.
THROW LIKE A GIRL
Davis starred in a cinematic Chevy commercial filmed by famed director Spike Lee.
REMEMBER MY NAME
With a signature sneaker line, a book, and a forthcoming Disney movie, Davis has all her bases covered.
ESPY AWARDS 2015
Davis winning for the ESPY for “Best Breakthrough Athlete” was as much a no-brainer as naming Ronda Rousey “Best Fighter.”
