Wilson Ramos, catcher for the Washington Nationals, has been found in Venezuela after being abducted at gunpoint from his mother's home on Wednesday. From Rafael Rojas:

Wilson Ramos has appeared, per Marfa Mata, his press assistant - Developing

Most of the reports throughout the day had to do with the efforts that Venezuelan authorities were taking in the search of Ramos, but there wasn't a lot of news, positive or otherwise. His rescue or appearance, though, became official on Friday night.

Scot Drucker, a right-handed pitcher who is pitching in Venezuelan winter ball, tweeted a scene from the Tigres de Aragua game after the announcement was made:

Crowd is cheering #Wilson non stop. Game comes to a pause to a stand ovation as the #TigresDeAragua hug and thank everyone for the support

Expect the scene to come on YouTube soon and make you choke up a bit.
