Mo’ne Davis Hampton

Mo’ne Davis Hampton, Mo’ne Davis, who hurled her way into the annals of the Little League World Series and the hearts of the sports world as a pitcher for the Taney Dragons of South Philadelphia four years ago, has decided she will attend Hampton University next fall.

“It’s a big relief,” said Davis, who will play softball at Hampton. “A lot of people have been asking me where I was going. It feels great to finally commit somewhere. It just feels so good.”

Davis, who used a 70 mph-plus fastball to become the first girl to win a Little League World Series game as a pitcher and the first girl to toss a shutout in Little League postseason history, selected Hampton over Bethune-Cookman University, Southern University, Coppin State University and the University of Pennsylvania. She signed a national letter of intent with Hampton on Tuesday.

“The campus is beautiful,” said Davis, who was interviewed Tuesday. “The girls on the team are amazing. The coaches are amazing. It just kind of felt like home, which is what you look for in a school. Everything felt right. Since I’m spending my next four years there, I have to be comfortable.”

Hampton’s proximity to Philadelphia pleases her mother, Lakeisha Williams.
