Red Sox bullpen cop (yes, THAT guy) threw out ceremonial first pitch prior to Game 2 of ALDS

Remember Steve Horgan? Well, perhaps you know him as "bullpen cop." Yes -- the Red Sox cop that celebrated a David Ortiz grand slam over the right-field fence in Game 2 of the 2013 ALCS. Here's a refresher:

He's been serving as a member of the Boston Police Department since 1986. For the past 25 years, he's been covering details for the Sox and held his "office" in the bullpen since 2012. After an impressive resume helping the local community, Horgan will retire soon -- but not before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Saturday night's Game 2 of the ALDS:

The longtime Red Sox fan was accompanied by Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and reliever Joe Kelly caught the throw. As you can see, Wally was excited to be a part of it as well.
The organization gave Horgan a very nice tribute -- you can watch it in its entirety at the top of this post.
