Mo'ne Davis Little League

A memoir for someone who has only lived just over 13 years might seem a bit odd but not for Mo’ne Davis (pictured). She’s the pint-sized dynamo who pitched a shutout game in the Little League World Series this past summer, landing her a cozy spot in sports history as the first female to ever do so.  Now publishing giant HarperCollins will release Davis’ aptly-titled children’s book, Mo’ne Davis: Remember My Name in March of next year.

Davis’ team, the Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons, was eventually knocked out of the tournament. Still, the braided cutie, who is known for dealing a killer 70 mph fastball, was lauded for her incredible skills by such notables and admirers as the First Lady Michele Obama, talk show maven Ellen DeGeneres and NBA’er Kevin Durant.

Davis, who is an honors student, avid soccer and basketball player, as well, has become an inspiration to young tweens everywhere. She became the first Little Leaguer to land the much-coveted cover of Sports Illustrated, got the opportunity to star in a commercial directed by the legendary Spike Lee, and was asked to donate her now-famous team jersey to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The jacket of the much-anticipated book, which was written with Hilary Beard,  reads:

An inspiring story of a courageous young girl who learned to play ball with the boys, only to outshine them on the national stage in the most watched Little League World Series of game of all time. Mo’ne Davis’s story is one that will encourage readers to reach for their dreams no matter the odds, young girls to play ball with anyone, and add a new chapter to the rich history of women in baseball.

 Mo’ne, keep reaching for those stars!
