'Horganing' takes off after Ortiz grand slam
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Sox fans are celebrating after a come-from-behind win at Fenway Park Sunday night, but while David Ortiz’s game-tying grand slam hung in the air, Sox fans hopes were hanging there too.
“I thought that Torii Hunter caught it in the bullpen, and then I heard everyone scream so I assumed he dropped it,” 8-year-old Sox fan Jimmy Mulvaney said.
There was one person who knew the ball was gone, and he showed with a pose that has now gone viral.
Replays of the hit show Steve Horgan, a 27-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, in the bullpen with his arms raised the whole time in celebration.
“Horganing” has been called was seen around the city after that hit. Horgan himself recreated the pose after the game with Red Sox owner John Henry and Monday runners in the Tufts 10K Roadrace celebrated by “Horganing.”
The Red Sox went on to win the game 6-5 and tie the best-of-7 series at one win a piece.
Monday morning the team boarded buses en route to Detroit where the next three games in the series will be played.
“That was probably the best Red Sox game I’ll ever go to,” Mulvaney said.
