Mo’ne Davis, the girl who took the Little League World Series by storm last month, isn’t letting up. The 13-year-old has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and thrown out a first pitch for her hometown Philadelphia Phillies, but Tuesday night may have been the topper.

That’s when a major league player asked her for an autograph. Yasiel Puig came away with a signed baseball when Davis arrived to throw out the first pitch before the Los Angeles Dodgers game at Dodgers Stadium.

Chase Utley of her hometown Philadelphia Phillies is her favorite player, but she looked right at home in Dodger Stadium and even picked up a few tips from Clayton Kershaw, whom she’d earlier challenged to a pitching duel. (Unfortunately, he was preoccupied by a start Tuesday night.)

Oh, and her pitch was on the money.
