David Ortiz posts first photo of himself since shooting as he drops daughter off at college

Former MLB slugger David Ortiz posted the first photo of himself to Instagram since he was shot in the Dominican Republic in June. 

The Boston Red Sox legend shared two photos alongside his daughter, Alexandria, on Sunday as he and his wife dropped her off at college.

In a heartfelt caption, Ortiz wished his daughter "good luck with everything" and left her with some parting words of wisdom:

According to Alexandria's Instagram, she is attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. 

The photos are the first time the public has seen Ortiz since he was shot in his native Dominican Republic on June 9. The Red Sox arranged for Ortiz to be brought to Boston for follow-up treatment. He was released from the hospital on July 27 and posted his first comments since the incident on Instagram two days later. 

Ortiz recently hired former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis to investigate the shooting
