Watch Robocop Throw Out The First Pitch At A Detroit Tigers Game

This week was to commemorate the unveiling of the Robocop statue that was built thanks to a Kickstarter launched by Imagination Station Detroit. But things did not go as scheduled.

Originally Detroit was to celebrate Robocop day, a day that was completely dedicated to the iconic pop culture police officer who is half human/half robot. And while the statue unveiling did not go as planned, Robocop still got to tour the city of Detroit, and even throw out the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers vs Toronto Blue Jays game at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan, which happened to be the same the same day that the DVD/Blu-ray for the reboot was released. Hit the jump to see which Robocop stepped onto the mound.

Yeah, since this was for the DVD/Blu-ray release of the Jose Padilha reboot, we got to see the sleek jet black Robocop, not the classic silver one seen in Paul Verhoeven. But let’s face it, at least he did a better job at throwing the first pitch then 50 Cent did. In addition to the cerominal first pitch, Robocop also visited other Detroit hotspots such as The Monument to Joe Louis, The Spirit of Detroit, and 8 Mile. But like the broadcaster said, I don’t think Robocop was using his full potential when throwing out the first pitch. Next time he should use his arm cannon or a launcher of some sort to throw out the first pitch. Now that would have been a real Robocop pitch.
