The former Red Sox star was shot in the back while in his home country, and he had to have part of his intestines and colon removed.
He was quickly taken to the United States for further medical care after being initially stabilized.

This whole shooting situation is downright crazy, especially because the authorities are now claiming he wasn’t the intended target.
Anybody with eyes isn’t likely to believe that story. Ortiz was shot at pointblank range. Either authorities have no idea what they’re talking about or the shooter had the worst aim in the history of attempted killings.

Let’s hope Ortiz continues to improve at a steady rate and is back to his normal life soon than later. He’s a larger than life personality, and it’s great news to hear he’s out of the ICU.
