It’s another W for Mo’ne Davis. Sports Illustrated Kids has named the Little League star its Sports Kid of the Year.
First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted the news Monday, saying 13-year-old Davis “knocked it out of the park for girls everywhere.”
The honor roll student from Philadelphia became a sensation in August after leading the Taney Dragons to a 4-0 victory over Nashville, Tennessee. She is the first girl to win a Little League World Series game.
She’s since appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, starred in a Spike Lee-directed car commercial and has her jersey displayed in baseball’s Hall of Fame.
Sports Illustrated Kids says Davis shows that everyone has the ability to make an impact and inspire no matter age, gender or race.
She’s the ninth person honored as Sports Kid of the Year since 2007. Two brothers shared the award in 2012.
