Mo'ne Davis: Now 49 SI covers behind Michael Jordan

No pressure, kid.

Mo'ne Davis had the attention of the entire city of Philadelphia. Now she's getting it from the entire country.

Not a bad accomplishment for a thirteen-year-old girl, eh? Now she's only 49 more covers behind Michael Jordan (While MJ has graced SI's cover 50 times, only once was for baseball).

The Taney Dragon's star pitcher will grace the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated which will feature a story about her by Albert Chen.

Mo'ne caught the attention of star athletes last week when she became the first female to throw a shutout in the Little League World Series. She then helped her team on to a wild victory on Sunday night and will also take the mound on Wednesday night when Taney takes on the high-potent offense of the team from Las Vegas.
