BOSTON -- Boston police officer Steve Horgan never imagined that a simple gesture celebrating a thrilling comeback by the Red Sox would create such a buzz.
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."
It all seems a bit too much for Horgan, 50, a laid-back, 27-year veteran of the Boston police department who seems stunned by all the attention.
"I'm humbled by it," Horgan said Tuesday at Boston police headquarters.
Horgan, a patrolman, said he's been assigned to various duties at Fenway Park for the last 20 years.
