Spike Lee Produces ”I Throw Like A Girl”, Documentary on Baseball Prodigy Mo’Ne Davis.
2014 is truly the year of Mo’ne Davis. Since her achievements in this year’s Little League World Series, the world hasn’t been able to get enough of her incredible talent. Here, director and producer Spike Lee gives us an intimate portrait of the young athlete as we get introduced to her family, friends, coach and teammates.
Already the youngest person to ever grace the cover of Sports Illustrated, and the first Little League baseball player at that, the 13-year-old athlete, whose favourite sport is actually basketball, was one of two girls in the Little League World Series this year. During the tournament, Davis became the first girl to ever earn a win and to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history. She’s the 18th girl overall to ever play, the sixth to get a hit, and the fourth American girl to play in the Little League World Series.
Watching this makes me want to turn back time and put more dedication into the sports I loved playing as a kid. She’s just that inspirational.
"I throw 70mph, that’s throwing like a girl."
Damn right, Mo’ne.
