Scary news out of Venezuela, where Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos reportedly has been kidnapped by 4 masked men.  Ramos was visiting family in Valencia when 4 armed men entered the home and took Ramos away.  

In Venezuela, which is home to dozens of Major League Baseball players, the families of wealthy athletes are periodically targeted by kidnappers in hopes of a hefty ransom. This appears to be the first case of a Major League player himself being kidnapped.
