Former Red Sox ace Curt Schilling lashed out at Internet trolls after they responded negatively to Schilling’s daughter pitching for Salve Regina’s college softball team.

Although Gabby Schilling’s placement on the team was met with fond congratulations from her father, some Twitter users quickly responded with vulgar tweets.

“Tweets with the word rape, bloody underwear and pretty much every other vulgar and defiling word you could likely fathom,” Schilling wrote on his personal blog.

Instead of backing down, Schilling responded by outing the Twitter users. He identified one user as Adam Nagel, a student at Brookdale Community College in New Jersey.

“How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school?” Schilling wrote. “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?”

The tweets have already had repercussions for Nagel, who has since been suspended from school while Brookdale Police investigate into the matter.

Schilling has since asked Internet sleuths to track down other offenders.
