David Ortiz is one of the good guys in baseball, always has been, and always will be. Unfortunately, from the sounds of this story, with fame and glory comes severe jealousy. Love and hate at the same time. This time to the extreme. Brutal.
Source: 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,” Mr. Ortiz added.
The Red Sox legend was shot in the leg and as of right now, it sounds like he will make a full recovery.
Apparently, things caught up to the culprit quick, warning these videos are graphic and viewer discretion is advised:
