    The legend of Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old girl with the 70-mph fastball, continued to grow Friday, as she became the first girl to throw a shutout in Little League World Series history.

    She might have grabbed the title of coolest kid in the world in the process, striking out eight and allowing just two hits while getting praised by the likes of Mike Trout and Lil Wayne.

    Mo'Ne Davis is still five years away from entering college, and yet the NCAA's strict rule over the college sports world is already costing the Little League World Series star a lot of money.

    The owner of Steiner Sports, one of the leading memorabilia companies, told USA Today that he would be willing to sign Davis to a deal that would be worth up to $100,000 for her to autograph items. However, Brandon Steiner also said he would not make the offer because he was concerned it would jeopardize her eligibility to play college sports in the future.

    Little League World Series sensation Mo'Ne Davis is heading to the conference finals in Minnesota on Sunday.

    The 13-year-old star pitcher from Philadelphia became the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series and the first to win a game on the mound. She has said her dream is to play for UConn and then eventually in the WNBA.

    NCAA: Geno Auriemma broke the rules by calling Mo'ne Davis


    [​IMG]

    Having heard that 13-year-old Little League World Series sensation Mo'ne Davis is a big UConn women's basketball fan, coach Geno Auriemma took the time to call the star pitcher to congratulate her on leading her team to the U.S. semifinals.

    What a thoughtful gesture by Auriemma, right? Well, apparently not everybody thinks so.

    The NCAA ruled Thursday that Auriemma had committed a secondary recruiting violation by calling Davis because coaches are not permitted to call a prospect until late in their junior year of high school. Secondary violations carry little if any punishment because they are typically inadvertent in nature and represent no significant competitive advantage.
