Cal Ripken Jr. appeared on Good Morning America today to give an update on his mother, 74-year-old Violet Ripken, who was kidnapped from her home at gunpoint last week before being found unharmed a day later.

Ripken told GMA that she’s doing “pretty well” but has not resumed her normal routine of living at her home in Maryland.

Despite having a description and video police have yet to find the suspect, who abducted the Hall of Famer’s mother and drove her around blindfolded.

Cal Ripken Jr. is scheduled to hold a press conference today to answer further questions about the incident and his mother’s status.

    she’s got a long way to go to break the consecutive streak of being held captive.

      Too soon, perhaps, but you have to admit that it is funny.

    Nothing funny about anyone’s mother being abducted at gunpoint.

    Definitely jerk wads on here.

    If you just figured that out you don’t come here often.

      I think HBT reaches a new level every so often so people are continually in awe.
