Police in the Dominican Republic believe former Boston Red Sox star David 'Big Papi' Ortiz was shot by two cops hired by a Dominican Republic drug lord who believed the baseball player was having an affair with his wife.
The drug lord has not been named.
Ortiz's lawyer Leo Lopez denied that the shooting had anything to do with a woman but said it was the act of 'hired' killers.
Ortiz is expected to make a full recovery but suffered liver damage during the six-hour operation, his spokesman said.
