David Ortiz in 'Good Condition' and Out of Intensive Care, Wife Says
The former Boston Red Sox player, better known by his nickname "Big Papi", was shot at close range in the back on June 9.
The Boston Red Sox tweeted a statement from Tiffany Ortiz Saturday. She said her husband was recently moved to a different unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and remains under the care of his doctors.
The former Boston Red Sox player, better known by his nickname "Big Papi", was shot at close range in the back on June 9. He underwent surgery to remove part of his colon. His gall bladder and liver were also damaged.
Grainy footage of the incident shows a man approach him and fire. The bullet apparently went through Ortiz and stuck his friend, TV host Jhoel Lopez. They were seen outside the Santo Domingo club before the attack.
The suspect was immediately surrounded by the crowd at the club and beaten bloody before police arrived and arrested him.
The Red Sox sent a jet to Dominican Republic to bring Ortiz back to Boston for treatment as soon as he was able to travel.
