MLB 2019 Thread
Since the original MLB thread is in the archive bumped here with this thread...

Turns out Red Sox legend David Ortiz was shot in Santo Domingo and was far worse injured that inaccurate media early reports:

https://heavy.com/sports/2019/06/david-o...-big-papi/

Who - Big Papi

What - Shot in a club

When - Sunday

Where - Dial Bar and Lounge on Santo Domingo Este DR

Why - Not a clue rumors were a robbery then - a hit gone bad then - BS mistaken Identity...

How - A handgun of unknown type and caliber at this time

It was originally reported he was shot in the leg during a failed robbery attempt but it was far worse:

Dominican journalist Jose P. Monegro recently tweeted that Ortiz was transferred to Abel Gonzalez clinic on Lincoln Avenue after receiving initial treatment at the Integral Medical Center in the Eastern Zone. Monegro also tweeted that Ortiz was being operated on.

The suspect has been taken into custody. Police identified him as Eddy Feliz Garcia (pictured above).

A motive is not clear. According to El Dia, a police source said the incident may have been the work of “hired killers.” It is unclear, however, if Ortiz was the intended target. According to Listin Diario, Ortiz may have been the victim of a stray bullet.

“Video footage shows a man, with a bloody face, who was presumably sitting near Ortiz, stood up from his seat and shot Ortiz in the pelvis. Another version of a woman who was nearby when the incident occurred said that some individuals dismounted to shoot at a person, but the shot hit Ortiz,” Listin Diario reports.

The former Red Sox player was at the venue with television presenter Jhoel Lopez, who was also injured. The extent of Lopez’s injuries are unknown at this time, however, his wife Liza took to Instagram to let the public know that her husband is in “stable condition.”

At least one report indicates that Ortiz was shot in the lower back and that the bullet came out through his abdomen. That report also claims that Ortiz pleaded with the doctor, begging him, “please, don’t let me die.”

The suspect was identified by Dominican officials as Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25. Bautista Almonte told the ABC affiliate that he was captured and beaten by a crowd in the busy Santo Domingo party district after the attack on the beloved native superstar.

ESPN reports Dominican national-health officials confirmed Garcia suffered a cranium contusion, trauma to his thorax, trauma on his left knee, and trauma on his right leg, but was treated and released to police custody early Monday. Big Papis fans literally beat the devil out of this shooter no word on how many others total were with the shooter and if this was gang related. Lots of speculation.

It is not known if Ortiz was the intended target.

On Monday morning, Ortiz’s media rep, Leo Lopez, told reporters a team of three surgeons operated for six hours on the 2013 World Series MVP and removed part of his intestines and colon, as well as his gallbladder. He told ESPN that Ortiz had sustained liver damage from the gunshot wound.

“Doctors say he is out of danger, but he is heavily sedated and will be in intensive care for the next 24 hours,” Lopez told ESPN.

Bottom line is David Ortiz set up a foundation to pay forward Baseball Camp experiences for youth in the DR and Boston and is a beloved figure - during the last world series his commentary with ARod and other media announcers were constantly drowned out to cheers of Papi, Papi - he is even more beloved due to all the work he did behind the scenes with the Red Sox to support victims and families of the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Hopefully, he will have a full recovery and a long and healthy life.

Curious if anyone in the DR knows of this area and the current security situation there - foolish for a man rumored to be worth over $300M to be in a club without body guards imho.

The Surveillance Video Of David Ortiz Being Shot Makes Me Think It Was An Attempted Assassination (Sensitive Content, Obviously)

(Note: Reports are that Papi is stable. I’m sure he’s not totally out of the woods yet, but as I understand it things look good)

Me and Dave just talked about whether or not we should post this but the fact of the matter is that it’s a news story. Papi feels like a member of everyone’s family so it’s particularly unsettling to post, it legit feels like I’m saying “Here’s a video of my dad/brother/best friend getting shot,” but it’s a viral story and a viral video and news.

Having said that, that doesn’t look like a robbery to me, you know seeing as the guy didn’t try to take anything at all. That’s a straight up assassination attempt. The coward snuck up behind Papi and just shot him. It looks completely senseless and just makes an already disgusting act all the more disgusting. Seems like the DR has already taken some street justice, however. Shooting Papi in the Dominican is as stupid as shooting God in Heaven.

RE: MLB 2019 Thread
I saw the video and read the stories. It looked like he was shot in the lower back at point blank range.

It’s difficult to know but it seems like he was targeted because the shooter was so close. When I saw the video my first thought was “well, he’s too successful and too much of a public figure to be involved in drugs and gangs. He must have slept with the wrong woman.” Maybe one that belonged to a local gang member, drug dealer, policeman or politician? If he really was the target, I can’t think of another reason. There’s little chance he would owe money to anyone, but as a god in the DR he probably has women throwing themselves at him constantly. He may have picked the wrong one.

What I can’t explain is if he was specifically targeted as part of a contract hit, why didn’t the guy come up from behind and shoot him in the head? So its still possible he was an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire, I suppose. I’ve heard that there has been an increase in crime in the Dominican in recent years.

I am a Yankee fan and I can’t say I have any love for the Red Sox, but this is just horrible. Nobody deserves this, let alone one of the great ambassadors of the game.

I saw Ortiz play years ago, ironically at Fenway when he was playing for the visiting Twins. He genuinely seemed to be a good guy and was very supportive of Boston after the bombings. I’m wishing him and his family the best.
