Mo’Ne Davis first made headlines when she pitched a shutout to lead her team to the Little League World Series. In the process, Davis also became just the 18th girl to appear in the LLWS.
Then, when appearing for an interview on Fox News, Davis was asked why she doesn’t play a more “female friendly sport.” Davis, the badass that she is, later told Eric Bolling — the host who asked her about more “female friendly” sports — that she could strike him out.
Well, Davis is back. Pitching in the Little League World Series, she dominated, again.

Davis needed only needed 70 pitches to complete the game. She’s also the first girl to pitch a shutout in the LLWS. We’re not the only ones who were left impressed. So were current major leaguers.

Even Kevin Durant chimed in.
This youngster is striking everybody out and she is a girl. I love it. #itsanewday
