Davis is the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World Series.

Now the jersey she wore while pitching a complete game shutout hangs in Cooperstown, New York, the same place that plays tribute to other Philadelphia baseball icons like Steve Carlton, Joe Morgan and Mike Schmidt.

During a ceremony in Cooperstown on Thursday, where Davis’s jersey was inducted into the museum, she said she definitely understands the importance of this moment.

It will pave the way for more girls to play baseball and will be a better sport,” Davis said.
