Little League World Series phenom Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old who last year became the first girl to pitch a shutout in regional play, has of course been the subject of much media attention in recent months, and her story is set to become a motion picture.

Casselberry, a junior first baseman, had been batting .389/.522/.778 for the 2015 season with two home runs in 18 at-bats.
