It’s not every week you see a 13-year-old gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated. But Mo’ne Davis isn’t your average 13-year-old!
Last week, she became the first girl to ever throw a shutout game in the Little League World Series, waving her finger after each strikeout. Tonight, she’ll be back on the mound for her team, the Taney Dragons, pitching against Las Vegas in the semifinal match at Williamsport!
We don’t know what the final score will be but if we were to make a not so bold prediction, we’d say that after tonight's sixth and final inning, the world will have fallen in love with this baseball phenom all over again.

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick spent Sunday afternoon watching her son, Sean Preston, play in his little league game on a team coached by his dad, Kevin Federline.
In between jumping up and down on the sidelines while Sean Preston ran the bases, Brit Brit snuggled up next to Jason on the bleachers.
Check out more pics of the mom supporting her son's athletic aspirations below!

Olivia Wilde leapt into action after the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010 and was one of the first celebrity aid volunteers to arrive in the country.
The actress admits that her experience was so "amazing" that she's going back! This time, she's capturing it all on film.
Olivia is taking on a new role as the director of a documentary about a group of young survivors who are on a Little League team in Haiti.
Sounds like a terrific project that may border along the lines of a real-life Sandlot! Who doesn't love The Sandlot?
Good luck on the trip and the film, Olivia! Can't wait to see it!

K-Fed was spotted cheering on his song Sean Preston at his little league game in Los Angeles yesterday.
His team is called the Westhill Yankees.
Sean looks really athletic — Kevin, not so much. Take a couple laps around that field, K-Fed!

Drama doesn’t leave Doug Savant’s life when he steps off the set of Desperate Housewives!
Doug was drinking beer concealed in a paper cup during his kid’s little league game when a parent nearby confronted him about breaking the no-alcohol rule.
The Board of Directors (Savant is actually the president of the entire league, btw) determined that he should be suspended for an entire weekend.
Um, that seems a bit harsh! Can’t a guy drink a beer during a baseball game?!!
