Philadelphia's very own Mo'ne Davis earned a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame after pitching a two-hit shutout in the Little League World Series.

Now a high school senior, Davis signed a letter of intent to play softball at Hampton University in Virginia.

The athlete has a line of sports bras and, to celebrate her collegiate decision, she has launched a new bra in Hampton University's colors.

"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.
