Countering the earlier gruesome New York tab covers we showed you, Sports Illustrated offers a positive cover shot, promoting what is the best sports story of the month, young Mo'ne Davis.
The Little League pitcher from Philly cannot only play with the boys, and better than most, but she has a cool, calm demeanor few at her age can display.
Consider this, she is the first little league player of either sex to grace the S.I. cover and the youngest person ever, with a 13-year-old Tracy Austin (below) holding the previous record back in 1976. (Mo'ne is one month younger than Austin was then).
Not to mention her team is among the few big city clubs to make hay in the Little League World Series.
See her on the mound tonight. No, don't tell me about the SI jinx.
