NEW YORK–Mo’ne Davis believes in second chances, even for the college baseball player kicked off his team after sending an offensive tweet about the Little League World Series phenom.

Davis told ESPN on Monday she emailed Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania to request it reinstate first baseman Joey Casselberry. He called her a crude name while criticizing the Disney Channel for making a movie about her.

Davis says “everyone makes mistakes” and adds: “It hurt on my part, but I know he’s hurt even more. If it was me, I would want to take that back. I know how hard he’s worked. Why not give him a second chance?”

Bloomsburg University says it “stands firm” on the decision while appreciating her “level of maturity.” At 13, Davis was the first girl to earn a win and pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series last summer.
