13-year-old girl throws 70 mph fastballs, gives you a reason to watch the Little League World Series

New, comments

If you haven't heard the name "Mo'ne Davis," you're in for a treat.

Mo'ne Davis isn't your average Little League player, and she certainly isn't your standard teenager. She just so happens to be an astounding pitcher who dominates the competition and could help redefine how women are viewed in the sport of baseball.

Davis pitched a shutout on Sunday that helped the Taney Dragons of Philadelphia advance to the the Little League World Series, all on the back of her 70 mph fastball and a brutal curve. Yes, 70 miles per hour.

These pitches are just amazing. Check out the curve here.

How about some heat?

If you don't normally check out the Little League World Series, you now have a reason to watch.
