A memoir for someone who has only lived just over 13 years might seem a bit odd, but not for a phenom like 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 2015.
Davis’ team, 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 Michelle Obama, talk show maven Ellen DeGeneres and NBA MVPKevin Durant.
The jacket of the much-anticipated book, 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.
