FOX host Eric Bolling asks Mo’Ne Davis about playing a ‘female friendly’ sport like soccer

Mo’Ne Davis is the star pitcher of the Taney Dragons of Center City Philadelphia and led her team to the Little League World Series. She will become the 13th girl in over 68 years to participate in the Little League World Series, and she’ll be counted on to take her team for a ride.

But should Mo’Ne be playing Little League baseball or a more “female-friendly” sport?

“FOX & Friends” interviewed Davis on Wednesday and host Eric Bolling asked her about playing Little League instead of a more “female-friendly sport” like soccer.

I’m not sure exactly what Bolling was trying to ask because he worded it so poorly. He didn’t even ask a full question. But his implication was that girls shouldn’t be playing Little League. I’m sure hearing comments like that have to do wonders for Davis’ self-confidence. As if she didn’t already feel different enough because of her gender, now she has media members reminding her of that. Hopefully she keeps playing until she no longer wants to.
