Re "Mo'ne Davis inspires girls to dream with Little League star-power" (, Aug. 20): Someone once asked "When do you think we'll see a woman ordained as a priest in the Catholic Church?" A cynical answer was "About the same time we see a girl pitch a shutout against some of the nation's best boy players in the Little League World Series."

Well, it just happened. Mo'ne Davis pitched two shutouts for Philadelphia, and she is the star and face of the 2014 LLWS. Catholic Church, ball's in your court.
