The Iron Man will head to his old stomping grounds Friday to comment on his mother's recent abduction and return.

Cal Ripken, Jr., a Hall of Fame former Oriole, will meet with reporters at 10 a.m. at the B&O Warehouse at Oriole Park at Camden Yards to answer questions related to Violet Ripken's July 24 abduction on behalf of his famous family, according to John Maroon, a family spokesman.

"Mr. Ripken will serve as his family's spokesperson, and no other members of the Ripken family will be commenting on the abduction moving forward," Maroon wrote about the news conference. "He will not be available for one-on-one interviews, and he will be unable to answer questions directly relating to the ongoing investigation."

The purpose of the conference is about "keeping the pressure on" the suspect, Maroon said.
