If your TV wasn’t tuned into coverage of last year’s Little League World Series, then you might not know who Mo’ne Davis is. In 2014, she showed off her
cannon arm and was the first girl to throw a shutout in Little League World Series history. Davis pitched her way into hearts everywhere, proving that girls can do anything boys can do.
But she’s not just a baseball phenom, even though Disney is making a movie about her inspiring awesomeness. In fact, the Sports Illustrated cover girl told the mag that she doesn’t even know if she’ll keep playing baseball. Basketball, on the other hand? That’s her dream: to play college basketball for UConn.
“To be honest, I never thought I’d be famous for baseball,” she said at the time. “I want to play basketball, and I could also do both basketball and baseball — but I really want to play basketball.”
So it only makes sense that a team would snap her up because it’s never too early, you know? Davis has already been drafted by none other than the Harlem Globetrotters.
“The Globetrotters are exercising a ‘Future Discovery Clause’ to obtain the rights to Davis when she graduates from college,” reads a release about the team’s draft. A few months back, she got some practice in with the both the Globetrotters and the Washington Generals and wowed the crowd — and the players.
But it was her duel against actor Kevin Hart during the All-Star Celebrity Game that had people losing their minds. The way she breezed past the actor-comedian, complete with spin, is worth all the slo-mo replays:
Yep, she’s going to fit right in with the Globetrotters. She just needs to grow another foot or so, and then she’ll be wiping the hardwood with the competition. Brava, Mo’ne! Is there anything you can’t do?
Yeah, we didn’t think so.
