Oh, that picture forever will live in Red Sox lore: Torii Hunter, upside down and both feet up — while the Boston cop, in the Red Sox bullpen, stands with his arms raised, celebrating David Ortiz’s tying grand slam in Game 2.
So, anything to say to the cop, Torii?
“The cop’s supposed to be protecting and serving, and this son of a gun’s got his hands up,” Hunter said, laughing, Monday. “Help me, then cheer, fool!
“I sure wish I would’ve kicked him in the face.”
Turns out the police officer is 50-year-old Steve Horgan, according to ESPN Boston.
“He didn’t help me at all,” Hunter jabbed. “Protect and serve? Take that off his badge.”
Hunter, though, was very appreciative to several Red Sox relievers, including Ryan Dempster, who put the big moment aside and rushed to his aid.
