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.
