VIDEO: Famous Red Sox bullpen cop gets his own bobblehead

  • David Whitlock

We all remember the iconic scene from Game 2 of the 2013 American League Championship Series.  5-1 Tigers, bases loaded, and Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz lifts the ball to DEEP right field.  Detroit Tigers OF Torii Hunter seems to have a bead on the ball, then slams into the short wall in front of the Red Sox bullpen and crashes over.  It’s gone, tie game 5-5 (and the Tigers never recovered).  And there is Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan raising his arm in triumph.  Well, that image of Officer Horgan is now captured in bobblehead perpetuity.  Check out Officer Horgan as he is shown his bobblehead (via MLB.com)

And in case you missed the original call last year, here you go (via MLB.com)

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
