13-Year-Old Girl’s Shutout Sends Team to Little League Baseball World Series [Video]
Pitching a shutout can be a pretty hard thing to accomplish in baseball.
In the Little League Mid-Atlantic regional championship on Monday, Mo’Ne only allowed three hits in six innings in leading the Pennsylvania team past Newark, Del., 8-0.
She has a fastball that can get up to 70 miles per hour. But it seems that her curve ball is what really brings in the strikes.
“If I’m pitching, I just go out and throw strikes,” Mo’Ne said. “They think I throw, like, soft; but then they see my fastball, and they get kinda scared and I just strike ’em out.”
