College Baseball Player Calls Mo’Ne Davis A “Slut,” Is Rightfully Booted From The Team

Mo’Ne Davis is awesome. She’s a 14-year-old pitcher from Philadelphia and is the only girl to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history.

Watch Chrissy Teigen Throw A (Maybe Drunk) First Pitch

I have such a girl crush on Chrissy Teigen. The model and wife of John Legend seems like a freaking blast.
