David Ortiz Will Return to Fox for MLB Postseason Coverage

Nearly four months removed from a shooting that almost ended his life, former Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is returning to FOX’s MLB broadcast team for the 2019 postseason, according to The Big Lead.

The ex-Boston slugger will rejoin Kevin Burkhardt, Frank Thomas and Alex Rodriguez in the studio for pregame and postgame analysis through the conclusion of the World Series. Ortiz tweeted a photo of the quartet on Tuesday afternoon with the caption “soon.”

Best wishes for him in returning to broadcasting.

Yankees put rivalry aside, pay visit to recovering Red Sox legend David Ortiz

The storied rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will continue this weekend at Fenway Park in Boston.

On the field, that is.

Off the field, the rivalry was pushed aside as two Yankees players paid a special visit to Red Sox legend David Ortiz as he continues his recovery from a June 9 shooting in the Dominican Republic that left him hospitalized for six weeks.

...

Shortly after the Yankees arrived in Boston on Thursday, Edwin Encarnacion and Gary Sanchez both went to visit David Ortiz at his home.

David Ortiz shooting motive: Big Papi was not intended target, Dominican attorney general says - masslive.com

Red Sox legend David Ortiz was not the target of the attack that left him with a gunshot wound to the lower back last Sunday, Dominican attorney general Jean Alain Rodriguez told reporters (including ESPN’s Marly Rivera). Rodriguez said the target was Ortiz’s friend, Sixto David Fernandez, who was sitting at the same table at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo.

6 suspects, including gunman, arrested in Ortiz shooting – Boston Herald

Read the article for more information.

An alleged gunman and five accomplices have been detained in the shooting of former Red Sox superstar David Ortiz, Dominican officials said Wednesday, while providing no information about why a group of young men would try to kill their country’s most beloved sports hero.

Four other suspects were also being pursued in the shooting, which witnesses said was carried out by two men on a motorcycle, assisted by two other groups of people in cars.

“At this moment, they are being interrogated and we will continue deepening the investigation to get to the truth about what happened,” Chief Prosecutor Jean Alain Rodríguez said.

“Nobody involved in this unfortunate episode will escape justice, neither those who carried it out nor the mastermind,” he said.

The national police director, Maj. Gen. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, said the coordinator of the attack was offered 400,000 Dominican pesos, or about $7,800, to orchestrate the shooting. He said the alleged coordinator was also among those in custody.
