Nationals Catcher Wilson Ramos Kidnapped at Gunpoint in Venezuela, AP Says
Ramos, 24, was taken away in an SUV in Santa Ines in central Carabobo state, Kathe Vilera of the Aragua Tigers said on her Twitter site, according to AP. Ramos was playing winter ball with the Tigers.
“This is sad, worrisome and true that Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped,” Vilera said, according to AP.
Ramos was acquired by the Nationals from the Minnesota Twins in July 2010. Last year he hit .267 with 15 homers and 52 runs batted in during 113 Major League Baseball games.
