Mo’ne Davis goes to college
The Little League World Series star begins her journey as a Hampton University student
It’s hard to believe the 13-year-old who captured the entire country’s attention at the 2014 Little League World Series – the first girl to earn a win and to pitch a shutout in series history – is now preparing to start life as a college student. Mo’ne Davis, now 18, knows she’s not your typical college freshman – her Little League jersey hangs in the Baseball Hall of Fame; she’s been on the cover of magazines and headlined TV shows; and she has the admiration of the Obamas, NBA star Stephen Curry and Drake. Despite her stardom, she’s determined to have a normal college experience.
Davis gives The Undefeated an all-access look into her first official day as a college student and shares why she’s so excited to be attending Hampton University, a prominent historically black school.
