Boston police officer Steve Horgan became an icon during last year's MLB postseason, and now, the Red Sox have immortalized him with a bobblehead.

Last October, bullpen cop Horgan threw his arms in the air when David Ortiz tied Game 2 of the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers with an eighth-inning grand slam.

The Red Sox won the game 6-5 and eventually won the series in six games before going on to win the World Series.

Horgan throwing his arms in the air while Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter flipped over the outfield wall became an iconic image. Now, that moment will live on forever in the form of a bobblehead.

The Red Sox gave away 1,000 bullpen cop bobbleheads Monday, which happened to be Law Enforcement Night at Fenway Park.

NESN’s Gary Striewski caught up with officer Horgan during the game to talk about the bobblehead.
