Ortiz takes first steps following second surgery

David Ortiz's wife has finally broken her silence on the senseless shooting of her husband in the Dominican Republic over the weekend.

While Ortiz is recovering in Boston, authorities in the Dominican Republic are continuing to probe the shooting.

Doctors in Santo Domingo removed Ortiz's gallbladder and part of his intestines in the hours following the shooting at Dial Bar and Lounge.

David Ortiz, a three-time World Series champion during his career with the Boston Red Sox, was shot in the back Sunday in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, national police told CNN. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, the director of the Dominican National Police, said a group of people at the bar surrounded the suspect and beat him before police arrived, per ESPN. "Big Papi will be around for a long time".

López was shot in the leg, and his injuries were not life-threatening, said his wife, Liza Blanco, who is also a TV host.

"We all remember in 2013, when we needed David Ortiz the most, he was there for us in late April". The country's attorney general told Ortiz on Monday that the investigation had "advanced considerably", according to Martin Finucane of the Boston Globe, who cited a Spanish report.

The Red Sox held a moment of prayer for Ortiz prior to their home game Monday night against the Texas Rangers. His postseason heroics helped Boston capture its first World Series title in 86 years in 2004, when he was the Most Valuable Player of the American League Championship Series as the Red Sox overcame a 3-0 series deficit to the New York Yankees in seven games. A message reading "We send our love to David Ortiz" was flashed on one of the ballpark's scoreboards.

"I don't have enough words to describe who David is, what David means to baseball", Martinez said on air.

The Red Sox retired Ortiz's No. 34 in 2017, and Boston renamed a bridge and a stretch of road outside Fenway Park in his honor. "Because just one coward out there that wanted to do that to someone that didn't deserve it". "I'm here sitting with you guys and I'm trying to have fun, but my heart is with David, with his family, with everybody that cares about David".
