Mo'ne Davis to donate jersey to Hall of Fame
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - Mo'ne Davis' performance in the Little League World Series has earned her a place in baseball's Hall of Fame.
The 13-year-old Davis plans to donate the jersey she wore last month when she pitched a two-hit shutout, becoming the first girl to win a game at the LLWS. She will visit the Hall on Thursday with her Little League teammates from Philadelphia's Taney Dragons and the Anderson Monarchs, her longtime travel team.
Mamie "Peanut" Johnson, one of three women to play in the Negro Leagues, also plans to attend.
Davis and her teammates are scheduled to play the Catskill Mountain Cougars under-12 team from Stamford, New York, in an exhibition game Thursday at Doubleday Field.
