ST. LOUIS (AP) - The breakout pitching star of this year’s Little League World Series will be among those honored at the Musial Awards in St. Louis next month.

Organizers say 13-year-old Mo’ne Davis, of Philadelphia, will be recognized for her poise, maturity and sportsmanship. The awards are Nov. 22 at the Peabody Opera House, honoring the legacy of Stan Musial, the longtime Cardinals great who died in January 2013.

Davis will receive the Musial Award for Extraordinary Character, one of two special honors given out at the event. The other recipient is baseball Hall of Famer Joe Torre, who will be presented the Musial Lifetime Achievement Award for Sportsmanship.
