Before many baseball games begin, a special first pitch occurs. This is when someone is asked to toss a ball to a catcher. After that, the real game begins.

At a Detroit Tigers game this week, RoboCop did the honors. RoboCop is the character from the movies. He is a crime fighter.

This was part of "RoboCop Day" in Detroit. And to honor the DVD release of this year's "RoboCop" remake. The 1980s movie was set in Detroit.

It was cool to see RoboCop toss out the first ball. But many would rather have seen him hit a pitch about a mile!

    I wonder how far that RoboCop could have thrown the baseball. Because I saw the movie and he is like stronger than hulk. The cool thing about this article is RoboCop's armor. It looks so cool. Just like the article I wanted to read about how far can he hit. It is going to go really far. Or maybe it could go over the fence.

    John you are funny, do you really think that robot cop is real. He is just in his costume and he is really not stronger than hulk. By the way, hulk isn't real either. Robot cop is just a person dressed up as a person who is blown up up a million pieces. I think that he might have a bad throw because he might mess up because of his outfit.

    Rococo, a fictional movie crime fighter, got to throw the first pitch. At the Detroit Tigers game Robocop got to throw the first pitch in honor of his new movie remake. He had a movie in the night even eighties and it has now been remade. I think that it is cool that a fictional character got to throw the first pitch.
