"At the age of thirteen, Mo'ne Davis became the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World Series. She was the first Little Leaguer to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the magazine's sixty-year history. And as she began eighth grade in the fall of 2014, Mo'ne earned a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame - her shutout jersey now hangs in the museum in Cooperstown, New York. Mo'ne's story is one of determination, hard work, and an incredible fastball. From growing up in Philadelphia to throwing out the ceremonial first pitch--a perfect strike-- at Game 4 of the 2014 Major League World Series, her groundbreaking achievements are changing the game for women in athletics and putting a positive new spin on the phrase 'throw like a girl'."--Page  cover.
