David Ortiz shot and seriously injured in DR last night

He was in surgery for six hours.

Ortiz was shot in the back by a motorcyclist who approached Ortiz outside the Dial Discotheque in Santo Domingo, Felix Durán Mejia, a spokesman for the Dominican National Police, told CNN.

"The bullet went through his stomach," Durán Mejia said. Ortiz is in stable condition and "out of danger" after undergoing surgery.

Ortiz's father, Leo Ortiz, spoke to reporters outside the hospital after the surgery and said his son was safe.
"He is resting right now. He is stable," he said in Spanish.

A second person, television host Jhoel Lopez, who was with Ortiz, was also shot, according to his wife, Liza Blanco.

1. Jesus! Get well, Big Papi...

I'm a Yankees fan, but today, we're all Sox fans.

7. He's made millions of dollars

and if he can't go someplace and be safe, then I sure as hell won't go there.

Too many bad stories coming out of the DR these days, if it hurts tourism, maybe the corrupt powers that be will do something about it.
