He is part of one of the most iconic photos in Boston sports history. It was October 13, 2013. Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan was on duty in the Red Sox bullpen when David Ortiz launched an eight-inning grand-slam that dropped right in front of him and the somersaulting Torii Hunter. The shot tied Game Two of the ALCS—with Boston ultimately winning that series and the Fall Classic. Horgan reacted as any fan would—raising his arms in triumph. The Greater Boston community really needed that run to a championship—still reeling from April's Boston Marathon terrorist bombings. Now, Horgan is retiring after 33 years of service to the City Of Boston. He will always be remembered for his "V for Victory" outstretched arms. Who knows, he may even get his own statue outside of Fenway. Congratulations, Steve!
