Curt Schilling played the dad card on Twitter today and completely shut down two guys who were harassing his daughter Gabby on the social media platform.
Schilling called attention to his teenage daughter in a tweet, congratulating her on her acceptance to Salve Regina last week:
Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year!!

Of course, along with the many kind and very harmless message of congratulations comes trolls who have nothing better to do but type in lewd comments and fire them off into the Twittersphere.
Deadspin documented all of the tweets, and most of them use very NSFW language.
To give you an idea, here are a few.
That was enough for Schilling, who went, as Deadspin put it, “Dadmode” on his blog, tracking down the guys behind the Tweets and putting their information below the images of the screenshots:
The Sports Guru”? Ya he’s a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he’s on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College. How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don’t think this isn’t going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he’s after googles and reads this?
The other clown? He’s VP of the Theta Xi fraternity at Montclair State University. I gotta believe if Theta Xi is cool with a VP of one of their chapters acting like this I’d prefer to have no one I know in it. Also, does anyone attending Montclair State University have a student handbook? If so can you pass it along because I am pretty sure there are about 90 violations in this idiots tweets.
Since then, both Twitter accounts have been deleted (@Nagels_Bagels appears to have been suspended, while @primetime227 no longer exists), and Brookdale Community College released a statement on Facebook saying the student involved has been suspended. Schilling said these weren’t the only people sending him disgusting messages, but that he stopped after sleuthing these Twitter accounts because it was “more of the same.” He later updated his post with two more screenshots of offensive tweets for any interested party.
Schilling also had more to say on his blog, saying he understood “guys will be guys,” but “I can’t ever remember, drunk, in a clubhouse, with best friends, with anyone, ever speaking like this to someone….”
Gabby Schilling seems to be appreciative on Twitter.
