Philadelphia's Davis, Chicago team talk of LLWS

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — An African-American female pitcher from Philadelphia and a team from Chicago have created a buzz at the Little League World Series. Philly's Mo'ne Davis and the Jackie Robinson West squad are the talk of the series; professional athletes and politicians alike are following their every move. Davis, one of two girls in this year's tournament, is the unquestioned fan favorite. The crowd cheers her every pitch and at-bat. Canada's Emma March also felt the support before her team was eliminated Saturday. Paul Graziano, a LLWS press box announcer since 1980, says "two girls and a team from the inner city" at the series "will just bolster" Little League — which is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Davis (1-0) could return to the mound Wednesday when Philadelphia takes on Las Vegas.
