David Ortiz Airlifted from Dominican Republic to Boston After Shooting

David Ortiz retired from baseball in 2016 and the Red Sox retired his number in 2017

Tiffany Ortiz, the wife of David Ortiz, says her husband had a "successful" second surgery Monday night at Massachusetts General Hospital, after he was shot in an apparent ambush Sunday night in his native Dominican Republic.

Doctors in Boston anticipate that Red Sox icon David Ortiz will make a full recovery after being shot in the Dominican Republic over the weekend, his spokesman, Leo Lopez, told ESPN's Marly Rivera on Tuesday.

The former Boston Red Sox slugger underwent a second operation at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital overnight after being flown from the Dominican Republic on Monday. Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time. Patrons of the lounge caught Garcia and violently beat him in the aftermath of the shooting.

The Red Sox arranged to fly him to Boston following an initial surgery in the Dominican Republic to fix damage to his organs.

There's no denying David Ortiz left a big impact on a lot of people.

Eddy Feliz Garcia confessed to having a role in Sunday's shooting but claimed that he was not the one who pulled the trigger, according to ABC News. López said that Ortiz would be closely monitored for the next 24-48 hours, during which visits would be limited. Officials believe Lopez was injured by the same bullet that entered Ortiz, National Police Director Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte said, according to the Boston Herald.

Some analysts suspect Chinese exporters may have rushed out shipments to the United States to avoid potential new USA tariffs. Chinese authorities say the United States is exaggerating security concerns to block a potential competitor.

Police have not yet released the identity of the suspected gunman. His father Leo told reporters that his son was recovering. He won three World Series whilst hitting with Boston and was an All Star on 10 separate occasions. The accused's injuries have already been treated and he remains in police custody. Investigators said they were trying to determine whether Ortiz was the intended target.

He also helped the Red Sox win championships in 2007 and 2013, capturing World Series MVP honors in the latter season.

"When he fell on the ground, I said give me your hand", he told Pozo.

Ortiz, 43, had been airlifted to Boston Monday night on a medical air ambulance chartered by the Red Sox.

Ortiz retired from baseball following the 2016 season.
