Women's World Cup pitcher Jade Gortarez showed off a delivery that caught a former MLB All-Star's eye
The Women's Baseball World Cup is currently happening in Florida and it's been an exciting display of dingers, Gold Glove plays and just good ole fashioned baseball fun.

And if you were wondering whether she can hit just as well as Willis, she can:
