I had totally forgotten about this, but last year Cal and Billy Ripken’s mother Violet was kidnapped. She was, thankfully, returned unharmed after 24 hours, but the perpetrators have never been caught. The Ripkens want him caught:
The family of Cal Ripken Jr. is offering a $100,000 reward to help find the person who kidnapped the former Orioles star’s mother last year … Aberdeen police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick says the case has no new active leads. But Cal Ripken says he hopes the reward will help re-energize the case.
It’s also going to be featured on “America’s Most Wanted,” which is apparently still a thing, strangely enough.
