MLB Superstar David Ortiz, "Big Papi" has been Shot in a Drive-by Shooting While Visiting the Dominican Republic
David Ortiz [pictured left] is an all-time great to the game of baseball, but things have gone completely wrong for him. While spending some time in a bar in the Dominican Republic, a cop was hired as a hitman & he shot at Ortiz, in which the injuries suffered were not fatal. However, his gall bladder was removed & parts of his intestines as well, due to being shot in a vital area. An interview by Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez [pictured right], shows him tearing up & breaking down over his long time friend & teammate in which he won a World Series with Ortiz in 2004. He said "I don't have enough words for who David is & what he means to baseball. But I'm so disappointed to know that someone like David, who has saved so many lives, can have someone after his life... it hurts me, it hurts me."
