Mo'ne Davis is taking the high road.
The Little League World Series star has asked Bloomsburg University to reinstate baseball player Joey Casselberry after he was dismissed from the team for sending an offensive tweet in which he called the 13-year-old a s--t.
Davis appeared on SportsCenter Monday to address the issue. "Everyone makes mistakes, and everyone deserves a second chance," she said. "I know he didn't mean it in that type of way, and I know a lot of people get tired of just seeing me on TV, but sometimes you've got to think about what you're doing before you actually do it. I know right now he's really hurt, and I know how hard he worked just to get to where he is right now."
Davis said she reached out to the university and asked them to reinstate Casselberry, who deleted his Twitter account shortly after sending the tweet Friday. She had not heard back from the school by the time SportsCenter aired.
Bloomsburg Univ is deeply saddened by what was written about #MoneDavis by one of our student-athletes. His words do not represent us.— BU Huskies (@GoBUHuskies) March 21, 2015
We take matter very seriously; addressed the issue with the student-athlete (who has been dismissed from team), coach, and the team.— BU Huskies (@GoBUHuskies) March 21, 2015
Casselberry's tweet, which is not the first case of a student athlete unwisely taking to social media without first thinking of the consequences, was in response to the news that the Disney Channel was going to make a movie about Davis' life. She admitted that the tweet hurt, but said Casselberry was "hurt even more" for his actions.
