  • David Ortiz's wife Tiffany issues statement updating Big Papi's health

After a reported six hours of surgery - where doctor's had to remove part of Ortiz's intestines and colon and gallblader - the former slugger is now recovering in intensive care.

Ortiz led the Red Sox to three World Series championships - including, in 2004, their first title in 86 years of futility.

Dozens of fans crowded the hospital in Santo Domingo where Ortiz was being treated, causing a traffic jam.

Ortiz, 43, had been airlifted to Boston Monday night on a medical air ambulance chartered by the Red Sox. "You got this David Ortiz, we love you bro!"

The shooting unfolded Sunday night at the Dial Bar and Lounge, a nightclub in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.

Police say Ortiz was shot in the back.

A crowd of people managed to pull the driver off the motorcycle and beat him before police arrived.

"He finds himself in a good state of mind and is waiting to travel to Boston ... to see his personal doctors and his wife", said Dr. Jose Abel Gonzalez, one of the surgeons who saved the All-Star's life.

"Do you have any problems with anyone?"

"No, my brother", Ortiz replied, according to Salvador. General Hospital. He will remain in the ICU for "several days".

Police said it is unclear whether Ortiz was targeted.

His father added: "Big Papi will be around for a long time".

His wife Tiffany Ortiz released a statement Tuesday via the Red Sox. Jhoel Lopez, a television host who was at the club with Ortiz, was also shot. Police did not detail the injuries to the third person or make an identification.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Ivan Nova, who's from the Dominican, said the shooting rattled him. "We have to reach out to our multiple sources in the DR, and even when many of them are people we fully trust, the vetting process at ESPN has very high standards". "But I'm so disappointed to know that someone like David, who saved so many lives, can have someone after his life".

"Back home they talk about superheroes without capes. It's a tough situation".

The Red Sox retired Ortiz's No. 34 in 2017, and Boston renamed a bridge and a stretch of road outside Fenway Park in his honor. He maintains a home in Weston, on the outskirts of Boston.

"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", Tiffany Ortiz said. "Our focus is on his health and on getting him back here for treatment".
