A Bloomsburg (Pennsylvania) University baseball player is without a team today after he sent out a ignorant Tweet about 14-year-old Mo’Ne Davis on Twitter.com over the weekend.
According to Yahoo Sports, Joey Casselberry was the team’s second-leading hitter and played 1st base for the BU Huskies until he was kicked off the team on Saturday.
Bloomsburg school officials didn’t wrestle with their decision on a punishment after Casselberry tweeted out a reference to a movie Disney is making about the young baseball phenom who became the first female in Little League history to pitch a shut out game in the Little League World Series. Mo’Ne was also the first Little League’er to make the cover of Sports Illustrated.
In Casselberry’s feeble mind Mo’Ne should not have a movie made about her because she lost to Nevada in the LLWS last summer.
Casselberry’s Twitter account was deleted after the avalanche of complaints.
“You were way out of line and disrespectful,” Shirley Smith wrote in one tweet. “You should really be ashamed of yourself.”
