A crowd of about 30,000 witnessed history Friday.

Mo'Ne Davis is inspiring many young girls.

Mo'Ne allowed only two hits and struck out eight in Taney's 4-0 victory Friday afternoon.

UPDATE:

The Taney Dragons rallied with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning Sunday night to pull out an exciting 7-6 second round victory over Texas.  Trailing 6-5 entering the last inning, a triple scored a runner from first base and then a throwing error by the Texas shortstop led to the walk-off win.

Taney will now play on Wednesday in Williamsport and Mo'Ne Davis will be eligible to pitch after four days rest.
