Boston officer humbled by grand slam attention
Horgan raised his arms over his head in jubilation after David Ortiz’s eighth-inning grand slam tied Sunday’s AL championship series game against the Detroit Tigers and sparked the Red Sox to a 6-5 win, tying the series at one game apiece.
Photos captured Horgan’s raised arms next to the upturned legs of Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, who tumbled over the short wall into the Fenway Park bullpen in an unsuccessful attempt to catch the ball.
The result: a flood of media attention and a new name for his joyous, hands-up gesture: “Horganing.”
“Because I’m a Sox fan, I just raised my arms,” he said.
“It’s great that Steve is now part of Red Sox history,” Davis said.
Hunter, 38, is a five-time All Star who has developed into one of the Tigers‘ emotional leaders. He admitted Monday that he was shaken up, but was in the lineup Tuesday for Game 3, as the series resumed in Detroit. He was placed second in the lineup and singled in his first at-bat.
“I was going to give it every attempt to go out there and try to catch that ball,” Hunter said. “If it takes for me to get knocked out or die on the field, I guess I’ve got to do it.”
