Pennsylvania's Mo'ne Davis has been the star of the 2014 Little League World Series and now she is being honored with a Sports Illustrated cover.

Davis threw a two-hit shutout against Tennessee last week, thanks in part to a 70-mph fastball. The 13-year-old's pitching has grabbed everyone's attention and has now earned her one of the highest honors in sports.

All of the attention is nice, but Davis still needs to stay focused and try to help her team win the title.
