Bloomsburg University has kicked a baseball player off its team after he posted an offensive tweet about Mo’ne Davis, the young girl who became a star after her Little League World Series appearances last summer.

The Pennsylvania college announced the decision on Twitter, saying it had discussed the matter “with the student-athlete (who has been dismissed from the team), the coach and the team.” The words in the tweet, it said, “do not represent” the school.

The @BigCass24 account, which belonged to sophomore first baseman Joey Casselberry, has been deleted. He was the team’s second-leading hitter this season, according to Bloomsburg’s Facebook page, hitting .389 with two home runs in six games.

Casselberry, according to, tweeted an apology before deleting the account.

“An example that one stupid tweet can ruin someone’s life and I couldn’t be more sorry about my actions last night,” he said. “I please ask you to…Forgive me and truly understand that I am in no way shape or form a sexist, and I am a huge fan of Mo’ne. She was quite an inspiration.”

In an offensive reference to a girl just entering her teens, the tweet, screengrabbed by, stated: “Disney is making a movie about Mo’Ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada.”
