Twins Concerned About Players in Venezuelaby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — Washington Nationals catcher and former Twins player Wilson Ramos is back home after a harrowing kidnapping in his native Venezuela. Police still don't know exactly why he was taken, but baseball players and their families in Venezuela have become targets for high-ransom demands.
The Minnesota Twins have two Venezuelan natives on the team: Jose Mijares and Lester Oliveros. Both players are in Venezuela right now, playing in a winter league there.
Cathy Wurzer talks with Minnesota Twins president Dave St. Peter about how the team is taking steps to protect its players.
