There's something about Cal Ripken Jr.'s mom -- because cops say she was just threatened at gunpoint in Maryland ... barely a year after she was abducted at gunpoint in the same area.

Law enforcement in Aberdeen tell TMZ, Violet Ripken was leaving an NBRS bank Tuesday when she was confronted by a handgun-wielding man in the parking lot. Vi told cops the man demanded her car.

At that point, cops say Cal's mom was able to sound the panic alarm on the vehicle, and the man fled. He was later apprehended by police.

Thankfully, Cal's mom wasn't hurt during the exchange -- but it's still a scary reminder of last July, when Violet was abducted at gunpoint, forced into a car, and held against her will for 23 hours.

She was ultimately found unharmed, but still ... scary.

Maybe it is because her son and the other two announcers on TBS are horrible baseball announcers!

Moms absolutely needs a bodyguard. Too many whackos and this is just too much for a coincidence.

Why do car thieves in Maryland use guns to steal cars from old ladies ? Because if they didn't, they'd get their ass kicked.

Seems to me there is much more to this ladies story, she was abducted and kidnapped and driven around Baltimore about one year ago, and now held at gun point in Baltimore? Seems kind of strange to me, I doubt if we are getting the full story. We all know Baltimore is a very unsafe city but what are the chances this happens to a wealthy well known lady in Baltimore..

What kind of car is she driving? A hot car driven by an defenseless old woman is a bad combination.
