Ortiz back in Boston for gunshot wound care

David Ortiz baseball legend shot at Dominican Republic bar

Ortiz arrived in Boston late Monday night and will be treated at Massachusetts General Hospital as he recovers from the shooting.

"On behalf of me and my family, I want to thank (owners) John and Linda Henry, Tom Werner, (president) Sam Kennedy, and the Boston Red Sox for all that they are doing for David and our family, as well as Dr. Larry Ronan and the awesome staff at Massachusetts General Hospital".

Former Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, 43, is believed to have suffered organ damage when he was sacked at in a Santo Domingo club about 8:50 p.m. local time. He is still in the intensive care unit, and doctors say he is in stable condition.

Jhoel López, a TV host in the Dominican Republic, was speaking to Ortiz at the bar when the shooting broke out and was also injured, according to The Associated Press. The bullet is believed to have hit Ortiz in his lower back and passed through his body.

Ortiz retired in 2016 after helping the Sox win three World Series titles.

The gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people at the bar, and police were waiting for him to undergo treatment for his injuries before questioning him, authorities said.

Eliezer Salvador, a witness who drove Ortiz to the hospital, said the gunman said nothing, and just fired once.

David Ortiz was in America's hearts Monday morning.

There were few bigger personalities in the game when Ortiz was in his prime, and perhaps nobody more beloved.

Another one of Ortiz's former Red Sox teammates, Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, who also hails from the Dominican Republic, broke down in tears while talking about Ortiz on Monday night during a broadcast on the MLB Network.

"I don't have enough words to describe who David is, what David means to baseball", Martinez said on air.

"He finds himself in a good state of mind and is waiting to travel to Boston ... to see his personal doctors and his wife", said Dr. Jose Abel Gonzalez, one of the surgeons who saved the All-Star's life.

Our thoughts continue to be with David, Tiffany and their family.
