Mo’ne Davis is seriously a class act. The 13-year-old star little leaguer made news a few days ago when it was announced that Disney is making a movie about her life. While this is an awesome feat for anybody, not everyone was feeling her good news – especially Bloomsburg University baseball player, Joey Casselberry. He tweeted some disparaging remarks Davis that caused him to be booted from the team, but now Davis wants him reinstated.

According to TMZ, Davis and her coach emailed the Bloomsburg coach to get Casselberry back on the team, but the school isn’t budging. The team says that they appreciate her opinion, but he “violated the athletic department’s social media policy” when he Tweeted,”Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That s— got rocked by Nevada.”

Casselberry has apologized to Davis for his remarks and has since deleted his Twitter account.
