As you’ve likely heard by now, Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was kidnapped from his family’s home in Venezuela on Wednesday.
The latest update from Valencia is that police have discovered the four-wheel-drive vehicle the armed captors used to transport Ramos. And the Venezuelan police Twitter feed reported that “state law enforcement officials confirm ballplayer Ramos alive.”
