    Curt Schilling on vile tweets to daughter: 'This wasn't a mistake. This is a crime.'

    When Curt Schilling’s daughter was sexually threatened on social media by horrendous Twitter trolls following her father’s congratulatory tweet about her admission to Salve Regina University, the World Series Champion wasted little time in going into attack mode.
    Just like his playing days, Schilling quickly developed an aggressive strategy and, if he’s right, the result will be the same as so many batters who entered the box against him: The guys who made sexually explicit and aggressive references about Gabby Schilling will be out. In two cases, they already are.
    In a telephone interview with USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday, Schilling spoke candidly about his initial reaction to the vile tweets. In particular, he focused on two strings of tweets that were sent by two men: A New York Yankees part-time ticket sales employee that Schilling identified through internet search as Sean MacDonald and a DJ at Brookdale Community College in New Jersey identified by Schilling as Adam Nagel. Since Schilling first outed the duo on his personal blog, 38Pitches, Nagel has been suspended from Brookdale Community College and MacDonald has been fired by the Yankees, according to NJ.com. Neither man is using the Twitter account from which they sent the messages to Schilling.

    Good for Curt Schilling. He tracked these scum down and outed them resulting in one being fired and the other being suspended from school.

    They were saying the most vile things about a young girl that didn't deserve this treatment.

    If you want to see what they were tweeting, you can find it on Schilling's blog, 38 Pitches.

    True, but in this case I think they were diehard Yankee fans.

    I am curious as to how he was able to track them down since they were using anonymous accounts
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    I'd rather watch golf.

    There are many ways to find people on the Internet if you have a few resources.

    What a ****ing disturbing story.

    I'm glad the jerkoffs who did that wee caught and suspended. What is wrong with people? It's bad enough to think **** like that, but then to put it in writing...on the internet? Stupidity isn't a crime, but it should be. I'm going to guess those idiots will be a little more careful what they Tweet (Twit? WTF is the correct verb?) in the future.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you." - Curt Schilling

    Shilling needs to grow a thicker skin.
