This is crazy but baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr.'s mother was abducted from her home!
Vi Ripken was taken from her home when a man with a gun showed up at her front door and forced her into a car then drove away.
Luckily, she was eventually found, unharmed, in a vehicle near her house.
The Ripken family released a statement:
"This has been a very trying time for our family, but we are grateful and relieved that mom is back with us, safe and healthy."
Police are now looking for a motive though they can't seem to find one.
There was no mention of ransom and Cal Ripken apparently wasn't contacted at all.
So random and terrifying!
At least she's safe now.
