David Ortiz

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz underwent a second surgery at a MA hospital and is stable and resting after he was gunned down in the Dominican Republic.

Lisa Blanco, wife of Dominican television presenter Joel Lopez who was wounded in a shooting incident along with former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz (Big Papi), talks to the press outside the clinic where both men are being treated after being shot while in a bar in the city of Santo Domingo on June 9, 2019.

"David arrived at Massachusetts General Hospital last night and underwent a successful second surgery". Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time.

He arrived late Monday night, then underwent exploratory surgery at Mass.

According to authorities, Ortiz was ambushed by man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at a nightclub in Santo Domingo.

Eddy Vladimir Féliz Garcia was in police custody Tuesday morning after being pummeled by a crowd as he tried to escape the Sunday night shooting scene. Ortiz's spokesperson, Leo Lopez, told ESPN that his client has been alert and "even flashed that smile".

Leo Ortiz added: "Big Papi will be around for a long time". Ortiz's father told reporters the bullet entered his son's back and exited through his abdomen.

Jury convicts ex-NFL player of rape, mulls 8 other charges
Jurors were deadlocked on the eight other counts Winslow faces and continue to deliberate, according to the courtroom footage. The two other counts of rape involve a 54-year-old hitchhiker and an unconscious teenage girl in 2003.

Police have not yet released the identity of the suspected gunman.

Ortiz played for the Red Sox from 2004-16 and won the World Series with Boston in 2004, 2007 and 2013.

Ortiz, who retired after the 2016 season and lives at least part of the year in the Dominican Republic, is often seen getting his cars washed and hanging out with friends, including other baseball players, artists and entertainers.

The Red Sox arranged to fly him to Boston following an initial surgery in the Dominican Republic to fix damage to his organs. "So far, so good", Cora said here at Fenway Park on Tuesday.

From former President Barack Obama: "Six years ago, David Ortiz's spirit and resolve helped us all begin to heal from the Boston Marathon bombing".

Ortiz is third on the Red Sox all-time RBI list and second in home runs.
