NEW YORK (AP) — A memoir when you’re still a teenager may seem a little premature, but not for Mo’ne Davis, the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game.
Publisher Harper Collins told The Associated Press on Monday that “Mo’ne Davis: Remember My Name” will be released next March by HarperCollins Children’s Books. The honor roll student from Philadelphia became a sensation last summer after leading the Taney Dragons to a 4-0 victory over Nashville, when she was just 13.
Known for her long braids and uncommon poise, she has since appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and thrown out the first pitch at a major league World Series game. In September, she donated her jersey to the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
