Even though this is basically a commercial, I dare you to watch this and not get all teary over how awesome Mo’ne Davis is.
Move over, Publix Thanksgiving commercials and every animal commercial Sarah McLachlan has ever been featured on. There’s a new tearjerker in town. This time you’ll cry weepy tears of joy for Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old Little League baseball superstar.
Davis has demonstrated that throwing like a girl and playing sports like a girl mean being the first Little League player to ever grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. It means pitching a shutout in the Little League World Series. It means embracing sports with all her heart, because she’s what she loves to do. She’s a natural-born champion.
I can’t wait to watch Davis’ career continue to blossom. As a sports fan, it warms my heart to see women and girls involved in sports of all kinds.
Thank you for throwing #likeagirl, Mo’ne.
