Late Sunday night, it was reported that Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz was shot in his home country of the Dominican Republic during an attempted robbery. Sources have said that he suffered the gunshot wound in the leg and that he was being transported to a local hospital.

Ortiz was a 10-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion during his 14-year Red Sox career. During his 20-year MLB career, the 6-foot-3 lefty hit 541 homers and registered a .931 OPS. The 43-year-old is now frequently a featured baseball analyst on Fox Sports and he’s still actively involved with charity work in Boston.

Ortiz’s condition is still currently unknown, but he doesn’t appear to be in serious condition at this time. Further updates will be given when available.

UPDATE: Ortiz was actually shot in lower back and the bullet went through his abdomen contrary to initial reports that said he was shot in the leg. He underwent surgery early Monday morning and suffered damage to several internal organs. Ortiz is expected to make a full and speedy recovery.
