BACK IN THE U.S.: Ex-Red Sox slugger David Ortiz after Dominican Republic bar shooting
Published by : FOX 10 Phoenix
David Ortiz is back in Boston Monday night after the former Red Sox slugger affectionately known as “Big Papi” was ambushed by a gunman at a bar in the Dominican Republic, investigators said.
The 43-year-old retired athlete had been in stable condition in intensive care at a Santo Domingo hospital after doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine.
His spokesman, Leo López, said Ortiz’s liver also was damaged in the shooting Sunday night.
The Red Sox offered “all available resources” and sent an aircraft to bring him back to Boston.
