Mo’ne Davis continues to show why she deserves the title of star athlete.
After being verbally disrespected by college baseball player Joey Casselberry in an errant tweet, she’s attempting to let bygones be just that and asked Bloomsburg University to give him another chance.
Too bad, so sad, they won’t, though.
Mo’ne Davis continues to show why she’s the most mature 13-year-old alive — we’ve just learned she reached out to the president of Bloomsburg University and asked him to reinstate the baseball player who called her a bad name on Twitter.
TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for Bloomsburg who tells us … President David L. Soltz received an email from Davis and her coach in which they ask that Joey Casselberry’s dismissal from the team be reconsidered.
Casselberry was booted from the squad this weekend after he posted a tweet saying, “Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That s*** got rocked by Nevada.”
The team said Casselberry violated the athletic department’s social media policy — and possibly the school’s code of conduct.
While Bloomsburg says they respect Davis’ opinion and praise her for being incredibly mature about the situation — the school will NOT reinstate the baseball player … saying, “Right now we’re standing firm.”
For his part, Casselberry apologized for the tweet and says he’s a huge Mo’ne Davis fan.
