Police Arrest Second Suspect in David Ortiz Shooting

Former Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek is now a special assistant to the general manager

This includes the team plane, which the Red Sox reportedly sent to the Dominican Republic on May 10 to transport Ortiz back to Boston for further treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital, according to ESPN.

"David arrived at Massachusetts General Hospital last night and underwent a successful second surgery".

At a baseball game in Boston yesterday, a fan holds a sign sending thought and prayers to former Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who was shot on Sunday. He suffered damage to his liver, colon, and his gallbladder, earlier reports said.

Eliezer Salvador, a friend of Ortiz's who said he drove the slugger to the hospital in the aftermath of the shooting, told The Associated Press he asked Ortiz if he knew of any enemies who would want to have him killed.

He initially underwent emergency surgery at Clinica Abel Gonzalez in Santo Domingo.

Police said Ortiz was shot at almost point-blank range by a man identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25. Ortiz is in stable condition, expected to stay in intensive care for at least another 24 hours, and make a full recovery. New England Patriots star Julian Edelman joined the throngs of pro sports figures who took to social media to wish Ortiz well, assuring him on Instagram: "Papi, all of New England has your back". Duran declined to elaborate on what the suspect told the police, or if he was the man seen in the video pulling the trigger.

Garcia was treated at a local hospital and released to police.

Ortiz's father, Leo, said he had no idea why someone would have shot at his son. Authorities are investigating on whether Ortiz was the intended target. He was named World Series Most Valuable Player for his performance against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013.

Ortiz began his major league career by playing six seasons for the Minnesota Twins (1997-2002), but his career blossomed after he joined the Red Sox.

"On behalf of me and my family, I want to thank John and Linda Henry, Tom Werner, Sam Kennedy and the Boston Red Sox for all that they are doing for David and our family, as well as Dr. Larry Ronan and the unbelievable staff at Massachusetts General Hospital".

"When he fell on the ground, I said give me your hand", he told Pozo. He maintains a home in Weston, on the outskirts of Boston.
