'I Almost Died': David Ortiz Opens Up in Emotional Interview
09/14/2019 10:45pm

Three months after he was shot in his native Dominican Republic, Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz says his life is forever changed.In his first interview with an English language publication, Ortiz tells the Boston Globethat he almost died. David Ortiz Returns to Fenway to Throw Out Ceremonial 1st Pitch People need to understand, this isnt a movie where you get shot in the street and youre back two minutes later, the slugger said in a wide-ranging interview at Fenway Park. No, I got shot and almost died. I only have one life to live. I cant just go to the pharmacy and buy another one.Ortiz says he was drinking with about eight of his friends on an outdoor patio at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo on June 9 when a gunman fired a single bullet from close range into his back. David Ortiz Shares First Photos of Himself Since Shooting Everyone scattered when the shot rang out, leaving Ortiz critically injured on the floor, he said. The 43-year-old says an angel came out of nowhere, a bar patron named Eliezer Salvador, and he helped Ortiz into his Rolls-Royce and rushed him to a private clinic.Ortiz recalls that he was alert enough to know he had been shot but says he didnt understand much else about his condition at the time, telling the Globe that he didnt want to look at his wound. Big Papi Will Be Back: David Ortiz Makes First Remarks Since Shooting As the retired slugger was taken into his first surgery, Ortiz says he told the medical staff, Please dont let me die. I have four children. I want to be with them.Surgeons removed his gallbladder and operated on his badly damaged intestines and liver. Shortly after, the Red Sox arranged for Ortiz to be transported to Massachusetts General Hospital.Before his flight to Boston, Ortiz says he remembers being questioned at his bedside by Dominican Attorney General Jean Alain Rodriguez but remembers little else about the day after the shooting.Ortiz spokesman Joe Baerlein says that was his only interview with a law enforcement official about the ambush.Once at Mass. General, Ortiz was operated on for a second time. Trauma surgeon Dr. David King told Ortiz they needed to assess the internal damage and the quality of his first surgery in the DR.They did a hell of a job, all good, Ortiz quoted King as saying afterward about the Dominican surgical team.Despite successful surgeries, his recovery was slow. Then, three weeks after his second surgery, Ortiz contracted a life-threatening bacterial infection.It was very dangerous, Ortiz said of his condition. I got to the point that I started losing hope.Ortiz says he grew more despondent when he was informed he urgently needed a third surgery.He recalled some of his darkest days after his last surgery and how he could swallow nothing but melted ice chips for seven weeks except for a small cup of Jell-O and some fruit that he threw up.Tubes and intravenous lines provided his only nourishment, and he recalls that his mouth was so parched that it physically ached.I had nightmares all the time about being in the desert, looking for water, he told the Globe. I would wake up with my mouth dry and feeling like Im going to die.He felt hopeful when his medical team told him he would survive but he says at that time he began to consider he may never be the same Big Papi everyone was used to someone with a larger-than-life personality, capable of lifting up the spirits of an entire city.I felt that if I didnt die, then I would never be the same again, Ortiz said. I went through hell with that.Ortiz says, in hindsight, the turning point in his recovery came when he woke up from a nightmare and saw his sister Albania arguing with God as she asked for help.He was upset by what he saw and acknowledges that it hit him hard.But after that day, everything was different, Ortiz said. I started getting better.He held down food for the first time on July 22, nearly seven weeks after he was shot.Then, nearly a month after his third surgery, Ortiz was discharged from the hospital and he returned to his home outside Boston to begin the next phase of his recovery.There, he had visits from Yankees and Phillies players. And of course, Red Sox players, past and current. He says if not in person, then by phone.While it has all been renewing for him, Ortiz says he continues to try to understand why he was shot in the first place and says hes never been able to make sense of the multiple theories that emerged in the aftermath.Authorities originally announced that an unidentified person with an unknown motive had placed a $7,800 bounty on Ortizs head. Six suspects were arrested and Ortiz says he knew none of them.I dont know why I was involved in something like this because Im not the type of person who looks for trouble or causes trouble. All I worry about is trying to help people, about trying to do the right thing, Ortiz said before cracking a joke. You gotta pay a lot more than that to get me killed. I aint that cheap.Almost three weeks later, officials said eight more suspects had been arrested. Ortiz tells the Globe he knows none of those people, either. Police concluded that Ortiz was not the intended target and that the intended target was Ortizs friend, who was sitting next to him at the bar. Authorities said there was a $30,000 bounty on the friends head because his cousin, an alleged drug dealer, wanted him killed for allegedly speaking to police eight years earlier.Ortiz says this also makes no sense to him. Neither do questions about whether or not Cesar Peralta, a Dominican drug kingpin known as The Abuser, or his cartel may have been involved in the shooting.Regarding the tabloid rumors that spread following the shooting, Ortiz dismissed those, including one that suggested he had been chased and forced off the road by someone trying to harm him before the shooting.If that ever happened to me, the first person I would call would be the president of the Dominican Republic, Ortiz said in his Globe interview. I know he would do something about it. Thats how close we are.Due to his own lingering questions, Ortiz decided to hire former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis to investigate the shooting. His spokesman says Davis has yet to uncover any significant new evidence.I want to find out who did this, Ortiz said. Im not going to sit around and chill if theres somebody out there who wants to kill me.Baerlein says the Edward Davis Company is also providing security services for Ortiz and his family.While Ortiz continues to make strides in his recovery, including gaining back some of the 40 pounds he lost, he says he has sadly found himself withdrawing a bit since the shooting.I was always very accessible, but I think Im going to cut down on that a little now, Ortiz said. One lesson Ive learned is that you cant be naive. There are a lot of things going on now that you have to be aware of. I need to pay attention and be more careful.Red Sox Nation was happy to see Ortiz back at Fenway Park earlier this week, wherehe tossed a ceremonial first pitchbefore the Sox played the New York Yankees in the final game of a four-game series. During his first Fenway appearance since the shooting, Ortiz thanked God and the Red Sox.First of all, I want to thank God for giving me a second opportunity in my life to be able to be here with all of you, Ortiz said. I want to thank the Red Sox, my real family. They always have been there for me, supporting me. They were aware of what happened to me, and they were the first ones there supporting me. Thank you very much, Red Sox fans.Sox fans outside Fenway Park Saturday night reacted to Ortizs Globe interview, saying its sad what happened to him and that he didnt deserve it.It doesnt matter that hes Bostons hero, right, hes still a human and its terrible that someone would take advantage of that, said one woman with her son. Thats awful. Like, hes his hero, ya know And to know that heroes feel like that, makes you pretty sad, huhHes probably one of the kindest, gentlest people in the world, probably on the planet actually, and he didnt deserve what happened to him, one fan said.Other Sox fans understood how the shooting could have adjusted Ortizs lifestyle.Get paranoid man. You just get paranoid. Youre looking over your back all the time. I think a lot of people want what he has, one man said.Ortiz, who dropped his daughter Alex off at the Berklee College of Music in late August, says he plans to head to Los Angeles soon to resume his role as a Fox Sports analyst for the major league baseball playoffs in October. Hell then take a trip to Florida in November for his annual charity golf tournament.And he does say that he will return to the Dominican Republic one day, likely with security.Ortiz says he expects to be fully physically recovered by Thanksgiving but knows other scars will linger.

Baines presented Crawford with a special White Sox jersey, complete with the number 112, and marveled at the incredible journey he had taken to Guaranteed Rate Field.It was an honor for me to meet him, he said. Its incredible to first even be 112 then to be a White Sox fan on top of that was amazing.After Crawford got to experience what it was like to be on the field at Guaranteed Rate Field, he watched the game from one of the stadiums club level areas. He was also honored on the video board during the game.Im so happy to be here, he said.Holmes surprised Crawford with the tickets, and of all the 41,000-plus days the long-time fan has lived, this one appeared to turn out to be one of the most special.He just started smiling when he saw the stadium, Holmes said. I saw those little eyes. There was some water there.

Injured Charger Hunter Henry to Miss 4 to 6 Weeks: Report
09/12/2019 11:06am

After missing most of the 2018 season with a torn ACL, Hunter Henry and the Chargers hoped to have the tight end on the field and healthy in 2019. Those dreams were dashed after just one game.The team announced Wednesday that Henry suffered a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee. ESPN reported the player will miss 4 to 6 weeks.Its obviously disappointing, quarterback Philip Rivers said. You hate it for him. You saw how excited he was to be out there this year and how hard he worked to get back. From an offensive standpoint, you saw how big a part of it he is and what it was going to be from last week here as the season gets going.The Arkansas product hurt his knee during Sundays game against the Colts in the fourth quarter with 30 seconds left in regulation. He came back in overtime and caught a 17-yard pass from Rivers. He also delivered a key block to help running back Austin Ekeler score the game-winning touchdown.Hes taking it tough, but hes doing fine, said head coach Anthony Lynn. He wants to be here with his teammates. He wants to play. And not being out there with them, he feels like hes letting them down. But hes not. You cant control these things. You can only control what you can control.Henry tore his ACL in May 2018 during OTAs in a non-contact play. He worked his way back in time to play in the divisional game of the playoffs against the New England Patriots.Hunter is just a guy who loves being out there, explained Ekeler. Hes vocal out there on the field. Hes always saying random things and just smiling. We just got him back and he fractures his knee. Hopefully its a clean recovery and he is back out.The Chargers were already missing safety Derwin James, left tackle Russell Okung, cornerback Trevor Williams, and running back Melvin Gordon hold out. Despite all the losses the team hasnt moved off their next man up mentality.The league doesnt wait on anybody. I dont care what player you are, but Hunter was a big part of our offense, center Mike Pouncey said. We are going to need guys to step up to replace his production until he gets back. I think we have enough depth at that position to get the job done.Two of the players that will need to step up are tight ends Virgil Green and Sean Culkin, who saw a lot of work last year when Henry missed time due to injury. Last year they had Antonio Gates as their third tight end, but it doesnt sound like that will be the case this year.I have not been in contact with Antonio, Anthony Lynn said. Im not sure what his situation is.Lynn did state that the team will not put the fourth-year tight end on IR because they are hopeful they will get him back sooner rather than later.Nuts N Bolts Chargers Wednesday injury report: DNP did not practice: CB Mike Davis hamstring, TE Hunter Henry knee, DE Isaac Rochell concussion, S Roderic Teamer hamstring, WR Mike Williams knee. Limited Practice: K Michael Badgley right groin, LB Jatavis Brown ankle, WR Geremy Davis hamstring, LB Denzel Perryman ankle. Lynn did say he was concerned for receiver Mike Williams availability on Sunday due to the knee injury and they will monitor him during the week. Punter/Kicker Ty Long named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, a career first. Long made three extra point attempts and a 40-yard FG. Long became the first player since Olindo Mare in 1997 to make a field goal, extra point and punt in career debut. Long also averaged 49 yards a punt.Photo Credit: Getty Images
