Wilson Ramos Kidnapped: Fans Organizing Vigil At Nationals Park On Friday

As the news on Wilson Ramos' kidnapping continues to be scarce, Washington Nationals fans have decided to show their support with a fan-organized vigil. The event will take place at Nationals Park at 6 p.m., and thousands of fans are potentially expected to attend.

Nats NQ has some of the details of the event:

  • The vigil starts at 6pm outside the Park. Keep in mind that Navy Yard Metro WILL BE CLOSED due to maintenance. Plan your transportation accordingly. Carpooling, biking in, walking, etc. all recommended.
  • It will be held outside the Center Field Gate.
  • Bring candles, signs, etc.
  • Solidarity by wearing Ramos/Nats gear would be sweet, but not necessary.
  • Dress warmly

The event is a grassroots event, and the team has played no role in it. Details are still being ironed out, but there will be something happening at Nationals Park. For more on the event, follow the #vigilforramos hashtag on Twitter.
