Marlins’ Sanchez decides against trip to Venezuela
Florida Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez says he canceled a
trip to his native Venezuela following the kidnapping of Washington
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos.
Sanchez was married last week in Puerto Rico and had planned to
visit Venezuela with his wife in early December. But he decided
against the trip after Ramos was abducted at his home on the
outskirts of Valencia, Venezuela on Wednesday.
Sanchez, who is from Maracay, hasn’t been to Venezuela since the
season ended, and said he’s now scared to go.
