Still Swinging Away IT HAS been five years since Mo’ne Davis took the mound for Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons at the Little League World Series and pitched her team to two wins, becoming the first girl to post a shutout. Her success made her an instant celebrity. Major leaguers tweeted about her, SI and SI KIDS put her on the cover (left), and President Obama invited her to the White House. “It’s kind of crazy to think that at such a young age, I’ve been mentioned with some of the greatest people in the world,” Davis says now. What has her life been like since her star turn in Williamsport, Pa.? SI got an inside look, for both a story (page 66) and a video that will be available on SI’s streaming…

RICH AGAINST THE MACHINE When Anthony Davis first demanded a trade, I was shocked. I had always thought of him as a measured and humble guy who would do anything for New Orleans and the team. Afterward, I viewed him as senseless and coldhearted. But after reading about all the things that Rich Paul had to go through, my views on him and on Davis have changed again. Paul should do whatever he feels is best for his clients. Reid Urban San Carlos, Calif. I found it disturbing to read that Paul says he will not “tolerate” disrespect after I watched Davis injure his shoulder and miss time with the Pelicans, only to play a few days later with LeBron James in the All-Star Game. Hypocrisy comes to mind when juxtaposing Paul’s statement with…

house money

LAST WEEK the MLB executive council gave the Tampa Bay Rays permission to explore becoming the Central Florida Rays of Quebec. With the team’s efforts to get traction on a new, publicly-financed ballpark in Tampa stalled, this plan is designed to let the Rays spend the first half of each season playing home games in a new, open-air ballpark in Tampa Bay and the second half in a new ballpark in Montreal. That’s right: A team that hasn’t been able to get one new ballpark built in a decade of trying now has its sights set on two of them. In this, the Rays may be finally using their ill-loved home to do what it does best: get other ballparks built. See, Tropicana Field, located in St. Petersburg across the bay from…

gabriele grunewald: 1986-2019

HAVING BORNE witness for a 2017 SI profile to Gabriele Grunewald’s ebullient determination, I came to imagine the next story I might write about her. It would be set in Eugene, Ore., in the summer of 2020, when Grunewald, her cancer in remission, ran the 1,500 meters at the U.S. Olympic trials. I imagined the interview afterward, watching her contort her face in that way she liked to do, joking about her performance and then turning serious to encourage and inspire others. I couldn’t wait to write that story. Sadly now, I never will. On June 11, Grunewald, known to the running community as Gabe, died of complications due to adenoid cystic carcinoma. She was 32, far too young and far too strong to die. Far too beloved. Yet cruelly, far…

blues streak

WITH THEIR 4–1 victory over the Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, the Blues pulled off the most improbable in-season turnaround in sports history—from last place in the standings on Jan. 2 (nearly halfway through their season) to champions by June 12. No other title winner has ever come close to St. Louis’s long-shot run, which earned one Blues fan a $100,000 return on a $400 bet from January. Even the 2011–12 L.A. Kings, the only No. 8 seed to win the Stanley Cup, were a .500 team at their lowest point. As for the other pro leagues, no eventual champ has stood so low in the standings so late in the season as this year’s ultimate underdog Blues. WORLD CUP Upon Further Review The Women’s World Cup has been hijacked…
