David Ortiz’s Wife, Tiffany, Offers Encouraging Update On Red Sox Legend

Ortiz was flown to Boston on Monday in an air ambulance provided by the Red Sox after doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine.

Here is the footage that has since surfaced of two women in a D.R. hospital fighting each other while Ortiz was in the back having surgery. She also expressed appreciation to Dr. Larry Ronan and his staff at Massachusetts General for caring for Ortiz. I love David Ortiz.

We have offered David's family all available resources to aid in his recovery and will continue to keep them in our hearts.

"David Ortiz is probably the most beloved and one of the most important players in our history, " said Kennedy, who got choked up while speaking.

Late [Sunday] night we were made aware of an incident involving David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic. The bullet exited Ortiz's stomach. Surgeons there operated for six hours to fix damage to his intestines and liver, also removing his gallbladder.

Ortiz was at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo on Sunday night when a gunman approached from behind and shot him at close range in the torso, authorities said. About 10% of those players come from the Dominican Republic, including Chicago White Sox rookie Eloy Jimenez. The television personality's injuries are not life-threatening, his wife, TV host Liza Blanco, said.

ESPN reports the attacker has been identified as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia.

Police have not yet released the identity of the suspected gunman. A second suspect remains at large.

Garcia was treated at a local hospital and released to police.

"Our medical team here in Boston and the doctors in the Dominican Republic have confirmed that David's condition is serious, but that he is stable enough to be transported back to Boston for continued care", said Kennedy. Red Sox president Sam Kennedy called Monday a "very hard day" for the organization.

Ortiz, 43, helped lead Boston to three World Series titles and retired after the 2016 season.

Police Capt. Luis Manuel Pimentel told CNN that authorities meant to question Ortiz, but had not been able to yet.

Fans held up letters spelling out Ortiz's name, and many showed up at the game wearing his No. 34 jersey.

Another one of Ortiz's former Red Sox teammates, Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, who also hails from the Dominican Republic, broke down in tears while talking about Ortiz on Monday night during a broadcast on the MLB Network.
