Writing a book about your life when you're still a teenager may seem premature. But not for Mo'ne Davis. She is the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game.

"Mo'ne Davis: Remember My Name" will be released in March. It will be published by HarperCollins Children's Books.

The honor roll student from Philadelphia became a sensation last summer. She led the Taney Dragons to a 4-0 victory over Nashville, when she was 13 years old.

Mo'ne is known for her long braids and poise. She has since appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. She also threw out the first pitch at a major league World Series game. And she starred in a car commercial directed by Spike Lee. In September, she donated her jersey to the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is located in Cooperstown, New York.

"When I joined an all-boys baseball team, my mom wasn't too happy," Mo'ne said in a statement. "I proved to her (and to me) that I could do anything I set my mind to. I hope (the book) encourages people to take a chance and play the sports they want to play and not just the ones people expect them to play."

This month, she and her fellow Taney Dragons will help kick off the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    I think a girl on a baseball team is good because some girls or women don't get
    a chance to play baseball.
