Default David Ortiz

Apparently shot in Dominican Republic. Hoping he's ok on behalf of all of us. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Sending prayers and good vibes to his family.

I have to figure that Big Papi is as close to the embodiment of a god as one can be in his country. Effing with him doesn't seem prudent.

From one report, apparently the shooter took quite a pounding from the bystanders........too bad.

That's an interesting twist. Where did you read that or were you just told?

The shooting can be seen in this clip. Definitely rules out a robbery and pretty much confirms it was a hit, but who knows for sure, really?
