This short story from the collection Wild Child was originally published in Playboy.

Marita Vallalba is revered in her Venezuelan village, and not just because her son, Aquiles Maldonado, is a big league baseball player in theUnited States. In fact, it is because of her son and his multimillion-dollarcontract that has been splashed across the Venezuelan newspapers that she iskidnapped and held for ransom. Upon returning home, Aquiles is advised againstpaying the ransom, but he is prepared to go to any lengths to get his motherback.
