Yikes … struck out by a girl. Yes kid, your terror dreams are now reality, and there may be more to come. A girl with a 71-mph fastball has led her team to the Little League World Series, and oh yeah, she also has an awesome curve.
Mo’Ne Davis threw a three-hit shutout on Sunday to lead Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons over Delaware-Newark National in the championship game of the Mid-Atlantic Regional. That sends her team to the LLWS in Williamsport and makes her the 18th girl to ever play there, and the seventh from the U.S.

For those who have never faced a 71-mph fastball from 46 feet away, that’s like a 93-mph fastball in a Major League Baseball game. Pretty nice heat. But then, when you add this …
Emma March of South Vancouver Little League in British Columbia, Canada, qualified. It will be the third time that two girls will be part of the same Little League World Series.
