I had totally forgotten about this, but last year Cal and Billy Ripken’s mother Violet was kidnapped. She was, thankfully, returned unharmed after 24 hours, but the perpetrators have never been caught. The Ripkens want him caught:
The family of Cal Ripken Jr. is offering a $100,000 reward to help find the person who kidnapped the former Orioles star’s mother last year … Aberdeen police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick says the case has no new active leads. But Cal Ripken says he hopes the reward will help re-energize the case.
It’s also going to be featured on “America’s Most Wanted,” which is apparently still a thing, strangely enough.
The Nationals are saddened to hear that we lost one of our biggest fans, Gavin Rupp, to cancer earlier today. We hope that the Rupp family finds comfort in the many happy memories they shared with Gavin, including his time at Nationals Park where he became an inspiration to us all.
