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 Philly.com, 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 Philly.com, stated: “Disney is making a movie about Mo’Ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada.”
