BALTIMORE (AP) — Police say Cal Ripken Jr.'s mother is safe after an armed man abducted her from her home northeast of Baltimore.
Aberdeen police say 74-year-old Vi Ripken was kidnapped between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday by a man who forced her into her car.
She was found about 6:15 a.m. Wednesday unharmed in her car near her home in Aberdeen. Police say she was not injured.
Ripken is a Hall of Fame infielder and earned the nickname "Iron Man" for playing in 2,632 consecutive games in his 21-year career with the Baltimore Orioles.
Police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick says Vi Ripken described her abductor as a tall, thin white man with glasses.
Budnick says he didn't immediately have more details.

Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland Athletics has become the first major league baseball player to kneel during the national anthem.
