OMG! This is awful!
Wilson Ramos, an MLB catcher who just finished his rookie season with the Washington Nationals, was kidnapped from his family home in Venezuela on Wednesday night by four armed men!
The baseball player was staying in his home country while playing for the Aragua Tigers in Venezuela's winter league.
The terrifying abduction was reported by Kathe Vilera, a spokeswoman for the Tigers, through Twitter account, writing:
"It's sad, worrisome and true that Wilson Ramos was kidnapped."
She goes on to say the best investigators are working on the case and, for Wilson Ramos' sake, we hope they are doing all they can to get him home safely!
Our hearts go out to the Ramos family and can only pray that everything turns out okay!
