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!
