Philadelphia's collective heart was beating for the Taney Dragons on Friday - loudly.
As the region marveled at another masterful performance from Mo'ne Davis, over a hundred fans gathered around four big-screen TVs in City Hall's outdoor courtyard to watch the game, cheering wildly through every inning.
They hooted at strikeouts. They applauded at hits. And when Davis struck out the final batter of the game, they rose to their feet and threw their hands in the air.
Chants of "Let's Go Dragons!" echoed into the sky.
Supporters were young and old, in suits and hats and jeans and jerseys. Mayor Nutter was there, as were other Little Leaguers, parents, and some who were simply fans.
