BOSTON (AP) -- The wife of former Red Sox star David Ortiz says her husband is making "good progress" at a hospital in Boston after being shot in the Dominican Republic. Tiffany Ortiz says in a statement issued by the team that her husband remains in the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, but has been able to sit up and take some steps. Dominican prosecutors say witnesses and security camera footage show that Sunday's shooting was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars.
