Famous Little League World Series alumni

Yardbarker Logo By Seth Trachtman of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 38: The most recent little league player to captivate America was Mo’ne Davis, who dominated her largely male competition in the 2014 Little League World Series. Playing for her Philadelphia team, Davis was the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series, and she led her team all the way to the semifinals of the tournament. With a fastball that clocked out at an amazing 71 mph (the equivalent of a 93 mph pitch in the majors), Davis became a national celebrity by the end of the tournament, as she made appearances on "The Tonight Show," the cover of Sports Illustrated and was even praised by the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
