Teams from all over the planet got ready to batter up as the 75th annual Little League World Series kicked off this week, and these kids are no rookies!
But baseball isn’t just a boy’s game anymore, this year, two girls are taking the mound.
Mo-‘Ne Davis is a pitching powerhouse; winding up and firing off 70 mile an hour fast balls for the Philly’s Taney Dragons.
And her team is hoping this 13-year-old Phenom will lead them all the way!
But Mo-‘Ne is not the only girl heating things up in Williamsport, 12-year-old Emma March pitches and plays first base for the team from Vancouver Canada.
Hey, these girls are giving a new meaning to play like a girl.
Co-ed teams weren’t always allowed, 40 years ago, a New Jersey State Supreme Court upheld a ruling that allows girls to play ball.
But the Little League World Series is no stranger to girls, Mo ‘Ne and Emma are the 17th and 18th girls to make it to the championships.
Won’t it be nice when pitchers wearing bright pink nail polish aren’t a novelty?
