    Early reports are he was shot in the leg during a robbery attempt.

    Itís really sad when you consider all the good he does for the community in the Dominican Republic.

    And Iím now reading he was shot through the back and it went through his abdomen.

    Lots of conflicting reports now, I’m not sure what to think.

    I’m reading he’s in stable condition though.

    I also hope that Big Papi receives a lot of blood during his stable condition.

    Spot on. The alleged suspect was beaten by the crowd and is being treated at the hospital as well. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Ortiz wasn't a major contributor to the hospital that he's at. He and Pedro are major benefactors to charities in the DR. Both are treated like gods down there.

    It sounds like the initial reports of Ortiz being shot in the leg were actually about a reporter that was also at the bar and hit by the same bullet after it went through Ortiz. Ortiz was shot in the back and the bullet went through his stomach.

    It's criminal that we have so many unstable people in our world society.


    Wishing a good guy well. Ortiz was a good competitor and a superb rival.

    Re: David Ortiz Shot in DR.

    Looks like some significant abdominal damage.. bullet entered his back and exited the front abdomen, had to remove some intestines and he has liver damage..
    It sounds awful, man it gets crazy in some of these places..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    It sounds like the result is about as good as you could hope from being shot nearly point blank in the back, in that it seems he's going to be okay. Hopefully he doesn't have too many complications in the future based on this and he recovers quickly.

    If his liver, gallbladder and colon were all hit, he came within about 2-3 inches of being dead.

    He's en route to Boston. I've always said that I'm incredibly lucky to live in this area. Not a knock on any other region, but the hospitals around here have some serious game.

    It's actually got the springboard to be a great travel slogan... "Boston... one of the better places to be if you get shot."

    I don't know about a speedy recovery, but based on where the bullet went in and the reports of what was damaged, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they discover some missed injuries to his pancreas or duodenum. I expect that they also did a colostomy, which will require another operation later.

    The plot thickens

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports....192521595.html

    Arrest made in Ortiz shooting; police, Ortiz representatives call it an act of a hired gun

    Ortiz was shot by gunmen hired by a drug lord who thought Ortiz was having an affair with his wife. The New York Post has picked up on this report but at the moment no other outlets are confirming it. A representative of Ortiz has said that, contrary to initial reports, this was not a robbery attempt, calling this “an act of hired killers,” but denied that it had anything to do with a woman.

    Mass General is one of the best Hospitals in the world. As a Boston hero Ortiz will get the very best care.


    I love baseball. It is the most interesting sport (to me) that there is. The skill level to play it beats any other sport.




    Loving baseball, I love the competitiveness of it. I can never hate any other team including Boston.


    That said I wish Papi all the luck he needs. He is truly a warrior and a great person. We need more like him
