Thirteen Year Old Pitching Phenomenon Mo’ne Davis Makes The Baseball Hall Of Fame

Look out world! That sound you hear is Mo’ne Davis’ 70mph fastball shattering the glass ceiling above a lot of little girls’ baseball caps. 

Mo’ne Davis, the thirteen-year-old girl whose stellar pitching performance in last month’s Little League World Series earned her the cover of Sports Illustrated, is about to be immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Mo’ne will visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, tomorrow, with her teammates from both the Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons, and her longtime travel team, the Anderson Monarchs. Seventy-nine-year-old Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, one of three women to play in the Negro Leagues, and who Mo’ne lists as her “favorite old-school player” on the Monarch’s website, also plans to attend. 

Mo’ne will present Hall of Fame officials with the Taney Dragons jersey that she wore when she became the first girl to pitch a complete game shutout in the Little League World Series.  After the presentation, Mo’ne and her teammates will play an exhibition game at Doubleday Field in nearby Stamford.

Thanks to Mo’ne, “You throw like a girl” is no longer an insult.

BREAKING: Terrebonne deputy shoots, kills 14-year-old | WWLTV

Louisiana State Police are investigating a fatal shooting involving a 14-year-old boy and a Terrebonne Parish deputy Tuesday night in Houma.

The incident happened in Kirkglen Loop after deputies were called to the scene just before 6 p.m.

Louisiana State Police Trooper Evan Harrell said the initial report said several armed suspects ran into a home.

Harrell said what happened exactly is under investigation, but state police can confirm that the 14-year-old was fatally shot. He said a weapon was was recovered “in close proximity” to the 14-year-old’s body.

There are three other suspects in custody — two juveniles and an 18-year-old, Harrell said. A fifth suspect escaped out the rear of the residence. Harrell said the home was abandoned at the time.

Relatives on the scene identified the 14-year-old as Cameron Tillman, whose picture you can see above. They say he was shot four or five times in the back, and that he was a student at Ellender High School.

"The individual that was fatally wounded, his family, everybody deserves a proper investigation, and that’s what we’re here to do," Harrell said. "And until we get everything nailed down, squared away, we’ll be out here as long as it takes."

The investigation is ongoing.

Editor’s Note: I do not trust cops one bit. Getting other cops to the scene to “make sure things are done properly” won’t do jack shit to counter the thin blue line. There is no such thing as justice for black folks in this country. 

Also from the article linked above:

Andre Tillman, Cameron’s brother, was inside the abandoned house at the time of the shooting. He said somebody knocked on the door. “My little brother thought somebody was just clowning, because somebody is always clowning by the door. He opened (it) and the man just shot him. He didn’t have nothing in his hand.”
