David Ortiz was shot during a robbery attempt at a bar in the Dominican Republic, according to foreign reports.

News channel CDN 37 reported on Sunday night that Ortiz was injured during a confusing incident at Bar Vial in Santo Domingo.

Santiago Matias later reported that Ortiz was in stable condition.

He is a club owner in his native country and also became a U.S. citizen in 2008. The 43-year-old is a 10-time All-Star, 3-time World Series champion, former World Series MVP, and one of the most beloved Boston Red Sox ever.
