“What it came down to was where it felt like home. Hampton felt like home”.

It’s official, former Little League World Series star Mo’ne Davis is taking her talents to Hampton University.

Davis was the first girl to lead her team with her arm cannon to a Little League World Series victory held a celebratory dinner Sunday in South Philadelphia.

The 17-year-old also has a line of sports bras and, to celebrate her academic decision, she launched a new bra dripped in Hampton Pirate blue.

“I’m very excited. It was a long process,” said Davis. “What it came down to, is where it felt like home. Hampton felt like home.”

Davis is set to graduate from Springside Chestnut Hill Academy this spring.
