Hey Mo'Ne! You Throw Like a Girl

Recently we talked about how the Always company had a new campaign out bringing to light the use of the term "...like a girl". The idea was change the meaning of "...like a girl" to mean fast, strong, good, instead of weak or clumsy. How many times have you heard someone say, "You throw like a girl!". Well recently a 13 year old girl named Mo'Ne Davis has redefined what that term means.

Mo'Ne was one of only 2 girls to play in the 2014 Little League World Series. She pitched for the Philadelphia Taney Dragons . That is a big deal in itself. But this kid has the arm of gold! At just 13 years old she not only has a mean curve ball, but she can throw a ball at 70 miles per hour. 7-0! That is about 20 miles per hour faster than most boys her age. She is causing quite a commotion in the sports world, so much so that she graced the cover of Sport Illustrated. That's right a 13 year old girl is on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine.

As the Momma to 2 girls I am happy to see Mo'Ne Davis and her achievements get so much public attention. She is a reminder that girls can do anything they set their mind to and that being #likeagirl can mean throwing a 70 mile per hour fast ball in the Little League World Series.
