David Ortiz responsive after being shot in Dominican Republic

David Ortiz responsive after being shot in Dominican Republic

Ortiz's father, Leo, speaking to reporters outside the clinic, said his son was out of danger and there wasn't any collateral damage, meaning there was no damage to major organs.

López was shot in the leg and his wounds were not life-threatening, said his wife, Liza Blanco, who is also a TV host. It was very fast. "But thank God he is stable".

A man who allegedly confessed to playing a role in the shooting was identified by police as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia.

It is unclear if he was the person who pulled the trigger or if he was driving the motorcycle.

"He is out of surgery and stable; he is resting", Leo Ortiz said.

Russian investigative journalist put under house arrest
Rights groups Amnesty said there was evidence that the authorities were fabricating drugs charges to shut up their critics. What's going to we learn about his arrest? The court rejected a request by investigators to keep him in custody.

Ortiz, who is from the Dominican Republic, retired from Major League Baseball after the 2016 season. The team won two more championships with him, including in 2013 when he was named MVP of the World Series.

David Ortiz looks on before the Red Sox home opening game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park on April 9 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ortiz was famously protective of Boston during his time with the Red Sox, and won worldwide attention for a defiant speech days after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing in which he blurted out "this is our fucking city" on national television.

Red Sox spokeman Kevin Gregg told MassLive the team was not aware of the incident upon being initially contacted.

He was hailed as a hero in Boston for rallying the city after the Boston Marathon bombing. Police in Ortiz's hometown of Santo Domingo would neither confirm nor deny the suspected motive. The Red Sox arranged to fly him to Boston following an initial surgery in the Dominican Republic to fix damage to his organs. "Stay strong", he said. Martinez even claims to have persuaded former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein to sign Ortiz before the 2003 season. He will be eligible to be on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot at the end of 2021 (for the class of 2022). Ortiz would be seeing a woman, related to a suspect being involved in matters related to the world of drugs. He underwent emergency surgery and his life is no longer in danger. "Get better Big Papi", former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi tweeted.
