By now you’ve likely seen Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter flipping over the shortened outfield wall at Fenway Park as he attempted to rob David Ortiz‘s game-tying grand slam during Game 2 of the 2013 ALCS.
It didn’t work and it lead to Hunter not only knocking the wind out of himself, but also a pretty nasty cut on the back of his head.
Through all the ruckus was a Boston police officer working security in the Red Sox bullpen who was more than thrilled with what he saw take place. Hands in the air, screaming for joy, the police officer didn’t exactly rush to the aid of Hunter who had just twirled over the fencing which apparently didn’t sit well with the Tigers outfielder:
Torii Hunter on the Bullpen Cop: “He’s supposed to be protect and serve. This son of a gun’s got his hands up! Help me, then cheer, fool!” Hunter added: “I wish I would have kicked him in his face.” That was all said in jest. I think. #Tigers#RedSox
Hunter then applauded the Red Sox’s bullpen for coming to his aid, though in fairness to the police officer, he did walk towards Hunter but backed off when the Red Sox’s bullpen rushed over to assist him.
