Are you sick of Mo’ne Davis yet?

Neither are we.

The Taney Youth Baseball pitcher becomes the first Little League player ever to make the cover of Sports Illustrated. She will most likely take the mound Wednesday night for the Dragons in their third game of the Little League World Series.

On Friday, Aug. 15, Davis — who throws a 70+ MPH fastball — became the first female in Little League World Series history to throw a shut out. She only gave up two hits and struck out eight batters in her team’s 4-0 win over Nashville.

On Sunday, Aug. 17, Taney trailed Texas but scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth and two more in the bottom of the sixth to win in dramatic walk off fashion.
