-- Taney Little League Star Pitcher and Female Baseball Pioneer Takes the Field in Cooperstown after Taking Her Place in History --
(Cooperstown, NY) – Mo’ne Davis spent the summer paving the way for girls and women in the National Pastime.
On Thursday, September 25, 2015, Davis spent the day surrounded by history – some of it her own – at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Davis and her Taney Little League and Anderson Monarchs teammates came to Cooperstown, where Davis donated the jersey she wore at the 2014 Little League Baseball World Series to the Hall of Fame. Davis became the first female pitcher to win a game at the Little League World Series, pitching a two-hit shutout for her team against a team from Nashville.
For Davis, who has previously visited the Museum several times and is well-versed in the game’s history, the moment was something out of a fairy tale.
