Mo’ne Davis has had one hell of a year and we couldn’t be more happy for her. Sports Illustrated Kids has named the Little League baseball star its ‘Sports Kid of the Year.’
The 13-year-old honor roll student and Philly native garnered major recognition after leading the Taney Dragons to a 4-0 victory over Nashville, Tennessee in August. She is also the first girl to win a Little League World Series game.
Sports Illustrated Kids says Davis shows that everyone has the ability to make an impact and inspire no matter age, gender or race.
