Report: David Ortiz shot, hospitalized in Dominican Republic on Sunday
Yahoo Sports Ryan Young,Yahoo Sports 3 hours ago



Per the report, Ortiz was shot in a burglary at an entertainment center in Santo Domingo, and transported to a local hospital. A suspect has been arrested, according to Dominican journalist Jose Monegro.

Ortiz was shot in the lower back, and the bullet exited through his stomach, according to ESPN. The 43-year-old is currently in surgery.

“They called me 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,” Ortiz’s father, Leo, told ESPN. “At the moment, everything is confusing. I'm trying to find out where they took my son.”

Ortiz, who was born in Santo Domingo, played in the MLB for 20 seasons, most notably for the Red Sox. The 10-time All-Star led Boston to three World Series titles in 2004, 2007 and in 2013 before he retired after the 2016 season.

This post will be updated with more information shortly.
