When the Little League World Series starts this Thursday in Williamsport,, PA, the town of Taney will already have an advantage when they play since they're also located in Pennsylvania; but they also have a secret weapon that every other team doesn't...

That weapon is their pitcher-Mo'ne Davis(pictured standing in the very center)

.

This 13 year old has a MONSTER curve and 70mph fastball, which is well above average.  What's equally-impressive was Mo'ne's Sunday performance of a complete game shutout, striking out six batters, and only giving up three hits!

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah, one thing I forgot to mention:  Mo'ne's a GIRL.  And yeah, she also pitches overhand.

This will be her first Little League World Series.  It's only the 18th time a girl has been a part of the LLWS in its 68 years!  She hopes to lead her team to victory, marking the first time ANY team has won the series with a female player!

For the guys reading this: Yeah, she's probably better than you.
