Abducted major leaguer Wilson Ramos rescued
The kidnapping ordeal of Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos ended after two days when Venezuelan police commandos swooped in to rescue him in a flurry of gunfire and arrested five alleged abductors.
Ramos said he was happy and thankful to be alive, and that the final moments had been hair-raising as police and the kidnappers exchanged heavy fire in the remote mountainous area where he was being held.
Abductions and kidnappings have become a huge security risk to all Venezuelans; however, the impact of this kidnapping on the future of Venezuelan sports will last for many years.
