Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez broke down in tears Monday as he paid tribute to former Red Sox teammate David Ortiz, who is recovering from wounds suffered in a drive-by shooting in the Dominican Republic.
“I don’t have enough words to describe who David is, what David means to baseball,” Martinez said on MLB Network. “But I’m so disappointed to know that someone like David, who saved so many lives, can have someone after his life… It hurts me, it hurts me.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Ortiz, 43, the former slugger affectionately known as Big Papi, was ambushed at a Santo Domingo bar Sunday by a gunman, who fired a shot that led doctors to remove his gallbladder and part of his intestine.
Authorities believe he was shot in a plot involving a cop hired as a hit man. Officials have a suspect in custody, Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25, and are looking for more.
Ortiz was flown back to Boston on an air ambulance owned by his former team and was hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital.
