NEW YORK- Little League pitching sensation Mo'ne Davis will be the subject of a Disney Channel movie.

The network says development is underway on the biographical film, titled "Throw Like Mo." It will tell the story of the 13-year-old who last summer made history as the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series.

A member of Philadelphia's Taney Dragons, Davis then became the first Little Leaguer to make the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine.

She will serve as a consult on the movie, which she hopes will encourage viewers to believe that dreams can really come true.

Disney Channel didn't specify an air date or cast.
