Who would win in a pitching duel, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw or Little League star Mo’Ne Davis?
We might get to find out.
The 13-year-old pitcher for Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons helped lead her team to the Little League World Series after pitching a complete-game shutout in the Mid-Atlantic Final on Sunday. After the game, she challenged Kershaw to a pitch-off, which he accepted Tuesday.
“Hey Mo’Ne, just wanted to say congratulations on making it to Williamsport,” Kershaw said via CBS Sports. “That’s awesome, such a cool thing for you to get to do. Such a fun opportunity and I heard you’re ready for a pitch-off. I don’t know exactly what that means, but I’m prepared. I’m ready for whenever you can make it out to L.A., just let me know.”
Davis’ fastball comes in around 70 mph on the radar gun, so it would be fun to see if it’s any match for Kershaw’s 90-95 mph heat.
