ABERDEEN, Md. – Vi Ripken, the mother of Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken, Jr., was kidnapped at gunpoint Tuesday morning, according to the family.
She was found in Aberdeen, evaluated on the scene and refused medical treatment.
She is now home with family.
So either these are the worst kidnappers ever, or the ransom got paid lickety-split. The family statement leads me to the latter view.
