The Yankees fired a part-time ticket-seller Monday for allegedly posting crude tweets about Curt Schilling's daughter, according to NJ Advance Media.

The former Red Sox pitcher sent out a congratulatory tweet last week about his daughter, Gabby, being accepted at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island, where she will play softball next season.

On Sunday, Schilling posted a blog entry about the numerous hostile and explicit -- some of them sexual -- tweets he received in response to his original tweet about his daughter.

One of them reportedly belonged to Sean McDonald, a Montclair State University graduate who was hired in January as a ticket-seller for the Yankees. According to NJ Advance Media, McDonald worked about 18 hours over four days before being fired.

"We have zero tolerance for anything like this," Yankees director of communications Jason Zillo told NJ Advance Media. "We've terminated him."

Schilling blogged: "I was a jock my whole life. I played sports my whole life. Baseball since I was 5 until I retired at 41. I know clubhouses. I lived in a dorm. I get it. Guys will be guys. Guys will say dumb crap, often. But I can't ever remember, drunk, in a clubhouse, with best friends, with anyone, ever speaking like this to someone."
