Big Papi has surgery after being shot

Print Article

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) - The Boston Red Sox say they have been notified by the family of David Ortiz that the former slugger sustained a gunshot wound to his "lower back/abdominal region" and that he is recovering after surgery.

The Red Sox, in a statement early Monday, say they have offered the Ortiz family "all available resources to aid in his recovery."

Authorities say the 43-year-old Ortiz was shot at close range in an ambush at a bar in Santo Domingo around 8:50 p.m. Sunday.

Ortiz's father says his son is out of danger and that the bullet did not hit any major organ.

Officials say the alleged gunman was captured.

The 43-year-old Ortiz hit 541 homers in 20 major league seasons, including 14 with the Red Sox. He helped lead Boston to three World Series titles.
