BLOOMSBURG, PA - A thirteen-year-old little league pitcher is showing some professional athletes what good sportsmanship is all about. You might remember Mo'ne Davis from the 2014 Little League World Series. She was the first girl to earn a win and pitch a shutout in tournament history. Since then, she has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and the Disney Channel recently announced plans to make a movie about her.

But all that attention isn't sitting well with some other ball players. Joey Casselberry, a college first baseman at Bloomsburg University, was kicked off the team after tweeting out sexist comments about Davis. Casselberry called her an offensive term for a promiscuous woman.

Instead of taking offense, Davis wrote a letter to the university asking them to let Casselberry back on the team. "Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance," Davis told ESPN.

Casselberry apologized on twitter before his account was deleted. Unfortunately for him, the university is standing firm on their decision to cut him from the team.
