Mo'ne Davis, the breakout star from this year's Little League World Series, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium last night. There have been a slew of straight-up horrible ceremonial first pitches lately—looking at you, Curtis Jackson and Miss Texas—but Mo'ne has a little more experience than most, and fired this one in for a strike.
A perfect opening pitch was just one part of Davis's Traveling Tour of Awesome Experiences, though. The party continued when Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers own young phenom, asked for her autograph last night, too.

Look how intently Puig is watching her sign that ball. That's not someone being nice and humoring a kid, that's a man who wants an autograph.
