The blogosphere is celebrating the return of baseball legend David Ortiz to Twitter. Ortiz was shot last month in a nightclub while visiting his birthplace, the Dominican Republic. The story surrounding the shooting has continuously changed from a chance shooting, to a hired assassination to a case of mistaken identity. Through it all, Ortiz has remained quiet until now, having been released from the hospital to finish recovering at home. Ortiz thanked everyone for prayers and expressed his gratitude for being able to recover with his family.
