Little League Star Mo'ne Davis, Teammates Visit Little Rock

Jun 29, 2015

Mo'ne Davis and her teammates in the 2014 Little League World Series have stopped in Little Rock as part of a civil rights tour.

The Philadelphia-based Anderson Monarchs are on a 23-day tour of landmarks of the civil rights movement and has made stops in Georgia and Alabama. The tour started June 17.

The team visited Little Rock Central High School on Sunday as part of the tour. Little Rock Central High School was desegregated in 1957 when nine black students were integrated into what was then an all-white school.

After visiting the school, the team headed to Lamar Porter Field to play an exhibition game against a team from the Little Rock chapter of Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities.

The Philadelphia team's next stop is Memphis, Tennessee.
