Little League pitching phenom graces Sports Illustrated cover

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - This year, there is some added excitement surrounding the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania.

Young pitching sensation Mo'Ne Davis is expected to take the mound once again.

The 13-year-old Philadelphia girl made history last week as the first female to pitch a complete game shutout in the Little League World Series.

Now, she's making history again, as the first Little Leaguer--boy or girl--on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Davis and her Philadelphia Taney Dragons will take on Las Vegas next.
