‘Horgan-ing’ Is New Internet Phenomenon As Playoffs Continue Today!
The Sox pulled off the unbelievable this weekend, and one picture has the nation’s attention! The Boston Police officer who raised his hands above his head in celebration when David Ortiz’s grand slam home run cleared the bullpen fence Sunday night said he is humbled by the attention the picture has received.
According to WCVB-TV, Stephen Horgan, who has been a Boston Police officer for 27 years, said this was his first year working the bullpen police detail at Fenway, though he has had many other assignments at the ballpark for the last 20 years.
“Horgan-ing” has become something of an Internet phenomenon with arm-raised photos getting wide distribution.
