I Throw Like a Girl

We're still waiting to see when the latest film from director Spike Lee, a non-traditional vampire flick called Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, will hit theaters, but there's still plenty of work the filmmaker has done that you can see right now. Lee directed the stand-up specials Katt Williams: Priceless and Jerrod Carmichael: Love at the Store (both are available on HBO right now), and he was also behind the camera for a great little documentary short called I Throw Like a Girl. The 16-minute doc focuses on Mo'ne Davis, a 13-year old Little League pitcher who made waves at the Little League World Series this past summer. She's awesome.

Watch Spike Lee's documentary short I Throw Like a Girl from Chevy (found via The Playlist):

Mo'ne Davis is such a phenomenon, becoming the first girl to pitch a shutout in the series, that she actually bumped NBA superstar Kobe Bryant off the cover of Sports Illustrated. Spike Lee's documentary features interviews with Davis' friends, family and her coach. The baseball player is also pretty talented when it comes to basketball too, and she has her sights set on playing in the WNBA. As someone who doesn't really enjoy sports much, I'm still a sucker for documentaries about various athletes, teams, events, etc. and this is a great, inspiring short to show any kids you might know with more than a passing interest in sports. Cool?
