Wilson Ramos came off the bench to deliver a walk off single in the 11th inning of the Phillies – Nationals game.
For most people, an at bat like that would be considered a pressure situation.
But remember Ramos survived an abduction in his native Venezuela last year. He was freaking kidnapped for more than 24 hours.
I am guessing that facing Michael Schwimer with the bases loaded didn’t phase him. Let’s salute the fact that we can admire his skills as a baseball player this year instead of thinking about any potential tragedy. He kind of makes me want the Nats to win.
Washington catcher Wilson Ramos was rescued.
I know very little other than that.
I don’t need to know much more than that.
A man was kidnapped and is back, alive and unharmed.
And I am happy that tragedy didn’t raise its ugly head this off season.
GET BACK TO WASHINGTON!!!!
Back to baseball.
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was kidnapped in Venezuela.
I really hope he is released unharmed.
Let’s all hope for that and trust the authorities in his country are working to get him back.
I hope by Spring Training this is a strange episode, far in the past, and we are talking about Ramos’ role in the building of a solid year in Washington.
Get him back.
