Report: David Ortiz shot in the Dominican Republic
#1
Former Boston Red Sox slugger and Dominican star David Ortiz was shot and wounded at an entertainment center in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, his father told ESPN's Enrique Rojas.

"They called to tell me that David is injured and that they took him to a medical center, but they did not tell me how he is or exactly where he was transferred," Leo Ortiz said via telephone from the Dominican Republic.

"At the moment, everything is confusing. I'm trying to find out where they took my son," Ortiz's father added.

Dionisio Soldevila, a reporter from the Dominican who hosts a radio show with Rojas, told ESPN he spoke with the doctor who first treated Ortiz and was told Ortiz was shot in the lower back and that the bullet went through and came out his stomach. He's currently in surgery, according to Soldevila.

A person who was at the scene told ESPN that Ortiz was wounded by a man, who is being detained, while he was in the "Dial" club in the eastern part of the Dominican capital, and that Ortiz was transferred to the Corazones Unidos clinic, which is located in the center of the city.

The 43-year-old, who was born in Santo Domingo, played in the MLB for 20 seasons but was best known for the 14 years he spent with Boston.

Ortiz made 10 All-Star teams and won three World Series with the Red Sox. He was named World Series MVP in 2013, when he helped the Red Sox knock off the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2.

"Police said Ortiz was shot at a nightclub in his native Santo Domingo. He remains in intensive care after being treated for bleeding in his liver and having portions of his intestines and gall bladder removed, said Leo Lopez, Ortiz's media assistant."

What kind of ar$ehole would do this to somebody who's been a pillar of the Dominican community?? A legend on the baseball diamond....but more importantly, a humanitarian to his community away from the diamond.

After a second surgery in Boston David was up today and took a few steps. He is one tough nut and wish nothing but the best going forward for him and his family.

It’s been reported that the shooter will be charged with attempted murder. As far as I know no arrest has been made yet, but it seems like it's just a matter of time.
