Major League Baseball player Wilson Ramos was rescued by the military today in a gunfire filled rescue that remarkably left no one injured or dead which shows there must have been some really bad shooting on both sides. Four men in their 20's were arrested and charged with the kidnapping of the player from his house two days ago. Four other men from Colombia managed to escape during the gunfire exchange and have not been found. Also arrested was a couple in their 60's who are accused of supplying the kidnappers with food and shelter.

Wilson was unharmed physically but says he suffered a lot of psychological damage. Well, I am glad he is safe because in Venezuela kidnappings do not always have such a happy ending. AT least two family members of major league baseball players have been killed after being kidnapped for ransom money.
