How could they not be? The team from Center City Philadelphia have captured the hearts of millions with their captivating personalities and unrelenting grit on the diamond. Their win over Pearland, Texas on Sunday night was one of the games of the year at all level.
This week Sports Illustrated is bowing down to arguably the best player on the Taney team, Mo'Ne Davis. Davis has electrified audiences as she can crank her fastball up to 70 mph while comparing her curveball to Dodgers Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw.
It has been a fun ride so far and it continues tomorrow night at 7:30 as Taney takes on the powerful team from Las Vegas.
