Mo’ne Davis wins again – this time in the maturity department.
Joey Casselberry, the baseball player removed from Bloomsburg University’s team after disrespecting the young sports prodigy via Twitter, got a plea to be saved at the plate. Davis recently reached out to the president of Bloomburg University and asked for Mr. Casselberry to be reinstated. President David L. Soltz received a letter from Davis and her coach asking for reconsideration on the decision to dismiss Joey from the team.
Joey’s strike-out began this weekend after he tweeted about Mo’ne stating:
The consequences came after the team claimed that Casselberry broke the school’s code of conduct and the athletic department’s social media policy.
Even after Joey apologized and took to Twitter to state he’s a huge Mo’Ne Davis fan, the president of Bloomsburg is still cemented in his decision. Mo’Ne’s mature and selfless move might not be enough to save Joey Casselberry.
