And ICYMI, she appeared in a much talked about Chevy commercial and in Teen Vogue.

Now she has been named 2014 Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year.

The Associated Press, via ESPNW.com, reports that the 13-year-old pitcher has become the youngest recipient of the award.

Davis helped her Philadelphia Taney Dragons team get a 4-0 victory in their first game of the Little League World Series, beating Nashville and registering eight strikeouts in the win, reports Bleacher Report.

“A lot of adults around me help out, taught me to be respectful, to be calm during everything and not let anything get to you,” said Davis, per the AP report.
