SHARE Mo’ne Davis forgives baseball player, asks college team to reinstate him

Mo’ne Davis is only 13, but she’s handled the spotlight with class ever since last year’s Little League World Series.

According to TMZ, Davis asked Bloomsburg University president David L. Soltz to reinstate a baseball player who was booted from the team for making a vulgar tweet about the little leaguer.

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.

Casselberry has since deleted his Twitter account, but not before apologizing for the nasty tweet.

Davis appeared on SportsCenter on Monday and was asked about the incident.

“Everyone makes mistakes and I know — he would if it was me — I know I would want to take that back,” she said on SportsCenter Monday morning.

“Everyone makes mistakes everyone deserves a second chance,” she said. “I know he didn’t mean it that type of way. … I know a lot of people get of tired of just seeing me on TV.”
