David Ortiz remains in intensive care in Boston following second surgery

David Ortiz baseball legend shot at Dominican Republic bar

David Ortiz's wife has finally broken her silence on the senseless shooting of her husband in the Dominican Republic over the weekend.

He added that he is pleased with the medical attention Ortiz has received but that he will be transferred to Boston so he can be with his wife and the Red Sox medical team.

The Red Sox offered "all available resources" and sent an air ambulance to bring him back to Boston.

The former Boston Red Sox player is now awake and in "stable" condition, his wife Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement issued through the Red Sox.

Red Sox officials have vowed to do everything they can to help Ortiz in his recovery, with team president Sam Kennedy describing him as one of the "most beloved players in our history".

Tiffany did not speak on that.

The Boston legend is recovering from surgery.

A man who allegedly confessed to playing a role in the shooting was identified by police as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia.

Two others were wounded during the attack, including Dominican television host Jhoel Lopez, possibly by the same bullet that passed through Ortiz.

He told local newspaper Diario Libre that the married father of three didn't know why he had been shot. "And so it's appropriate and expected that this community would rally around David when he needs us the most", said Kennedy. Ortiz remains in intensive care and will be closely monitored for the next 24 to 48 hours. I love David Ortiz. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, the director of the Dominican National Police, said a group of people at the bar surrounded the suspect and beat him before police arrived, per ESPN. He was soon taken into custody by the police.

Police said Ortiz was shot at almost point-blank range by a man identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25.

Francona says he spoke Tuesday to one of the doctors who's treating Ortiz in Boston and said the retired slugger is "in great hands".

Ortiz was famously protective of Boston during his time with the Red Sox, and won worldwide attention for a defiant speech in the days after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing in which he exclaimed "This is our f***ing city" on national television.

The Red Sox icon underwent surgery in the D.R. and was transported to Boston on Monday, where he again underwent surgery. Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, released a statement Tuesday morning providing an update on her husband while also thanking the Red Sox and the community for their support through this obviously hard time.
