Since Wednesday evening’s news that Nationals’ catcher Wilson Ramos was abducted at gunpoint, little else has been publicly revealed. His family, and the Venezuelan police, maintain that he is alive and being held, but nothing is known about the group holding him, or their demands. The Nationals, on the advice of the Commissioner’s office and Major League Baseball, have said very little other than that they are working with authorities both foreign and domestic.
Fans have organized a vigil tonight at the Center Field Gate at Nationals Park at 6pm tonight to show support for Wilson Ramos and his family in this difficult time. There’s a great post from Nationals Inquisition on the vigil. Special note: Navy Yard Metro is closed for the weekend due to work on the Green Line, so plan on going another way, by bus, bike or shuttle.
We’ll see you there.
