TAMPA, Fla. — The New York Yankees say they have fired a part-time ticker seller accused by Curt Schilling of making offensive comments on Twitter about the daughter of the former Boston pitcher.

Schilling congratulated his daughter on Twitter last week after she was accepted into Salve Regina University, where she’ll play softball next year. Multiple people posted vulgar and sexually explicit comments about her.

Schilling wrote on his blog Sunday that he was astounded by the ignorance and lack of morals. He reposted tweets and identified some of the people responsible, pointing them out to employers and other organizations he believed they are affiliated with.

Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo said said Tuesday the team has “zero tolerance for anything like this. We’ve terminated him.”

The Twitter account linked to the former Yankees employee has been deactivated.
