The magazine has a long storied history but relatively few athletes can say they have graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. Little league pitching phenom Mo’Ne Davis is one of them.
The 70 mph fast ball throwing hurler, who happens to be a 13-year-old Black girl ,graces the front of SI’s Aug. 18 – Aug. 25 issue.
This, is pure excellence.
