Ok so it may not be the Phillies, but this is still super super cool! The Taney Dragons, from (Center City) Philly, are headed to the Little League World Series following an impressive victory. They have only been a Little League team for TWO YEARS!
Not only have they only been a team for a short period of time, but they have a female pitcher - Mo'ne Davis. Girl Power! The game ended in the top of the 6th, with a double play. The Taney Dragons topped Newark National 8-0.
"It's all about the kids and it's all about having them have fun, having them meet kids from other neighborhoods, having them meet kids they never would have met and all pull together," said Siegel.
The team also won the Pennsylvania State Championship this year. Next up, the Dragons will play South Nashville on Friday, August 15th and 3:00 p.m. The team and their coaches get an all-expense paid trip to Williamsport, but their families will have to raise money to go with them.
