It's safe to say Mo'ne Davis, Zion Spearman, Jared Sprague-Lott, and the Taney Dragons are the center of the baseball world in Philadelphia this week. So it's no surprise that the fellas at the MLB level are taking notice and want to jump on the Little League World Series bandwagon.

And you know if there's a bandwagon, Ben Revere wants on.

The Phillies center fielder even wants some gear if you know a guy who can hook him up.

"I definitely want a jersey if anybody can get that for me. I'm letting y'all know, I need a jersey so I can represent for Philly," Revere said after the Phillies win over the Mariners on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park.

Manager Ryne Sandberg is just impressed with the way the kids have handled all of the attention.

"Watching the young players emulate what they see on TV, kind of like the post game interview that [Mo'ne Davis] gave. I thought it was excellent. I think she's seen the players do interviews and I think she handled herself very well," Sandberg said.

Unlike most Major Leaguers though, Mo'ne is capable of still saying interesting things.
