It happens on occasion in all of the Latin American countries. It was a Venezuelan who pitched for Baltimore a year or two ago if I recall correctly. Kidnapping is a major industry in Mexico and anyone who have even a little money is in danger of it.

Re: Wilson Ramos Kidnapped outside his home in Venezuela

It really isn't that simple if you are a ballplayer. The Venezuelan Winter league is extremely important for the development of younger players. Now a lot of the other Winter Leagues have become more important, but Venezuela has one of the top leagues. You have a lot of Major league coaches managing in these leagues to gain experience and a lot of young guys like Ramos go to these leagues to work on their skills. I doubt that there are many American born players down there recently, but it used to be standard procedure for young MLB players to go down there in the winter, most particularly because you aren't getting many AB's or innings pitched in the Show.

Joe Pesci would have taken out those kidnappers with nothing but a fancy ballpoint.
