Ripken offers $100K reward in kidnapping

The SportsXchange

Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is offering a $100,000 reward to help bring his mother's kidnapper to justice.

Ripken announced the bounty Thursday at the Sports Legends Museum next to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Last July, Vi Ripken was abducted at gunpoint from her home just outside Baltimore. She was driven around blindfolded for almost 24 hours before she was found unharmed in her car.

No arrests have been made, but the former infielder said he hopes the reward will breathe new life into the case.
