It was a terrible tragedy that Wilson Ramos was kidnapped and it’s a miracle that he was able to come out of the situation unharmed. However, the situation has had me thinking about the Yankees own pair of Venezuelans, Francisco Cervelli and Jesus Montero.
Roger Rubin of the NY Daily News caught up with Montero this week and asked him about the situation. Montero said that he is fearful of returning to his home country, but is still planning on doing so for a month this December.
“It scared me a little bit but it teaches me things like you have to be careful where you go,” he told Rubin.
He also said that when he goes back to Venezuela, he will spend the majority of his time at home with family and that even when he leaves home he will be sure to have many people around him at all times.
