Mo'ne Davis, the Philadelphia pitcher who keeps shutting out her male peers in the Little League World Series, can add another milestone to her resume: She's the first Little Leaguer of either gender to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.
"Last week, this week, maybe next week, she's owned the sports conversation," Sports Illustrated manager editor Chris Stone said. "How often do you get to say this about a 13-year-old girl? It's the easiest type of story to identify as a cover story."
