13-year-old Little League Baseball pitching sensation, Mo’ne Davis, is getting her own Disney Channel movie. How cool is that?

The biopic titled “Throw Like Mo” is currently in development.

It will tell the story of Davis who, last summer, became the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series.

For non-baseball fans, a “shutout” happens after a pitcher pitches a complete game and does not allow the opposing team to score a run.

Davis, who plays for Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons, is also the first Little Leaguer to grace the national cover of Sports Illustrated.

The 5-foot-4 inch, 111-pound eighth grader will act as a consultant on the film.
