Mo'ne Davis Has a Memoir Coming Next March
NEW YORK (AP) — A memoir when you're still a teenager may seem premature, but not for Mo'ne Davis, the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game. "Mo'ne Davis: Remember My Name" will be released next March by HarperCollins Children's Books, the publisher told The Associated Press on Monday. 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, thrown out the first pitch at a major league World Series game and starred in a car commercial directed by Spike Lee. In September, she donated her jersey to the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. "When I joined an all-boys baseball team, my mom wasn't too happy," Mo'ne said in a statement issued Monday through HarperCollins. Financial terms for the book deal were not disclosed.
