    DETROIT — Everybody's favorite fictional crime-fighting cyborg has made an appearance at a Detroit Tigers game.

    RoboCop threw out the first pitch at Comerica Park on Tuesday evening (Wednesday, Manila time) as the Tigers hosted the Toronto Blue Jays. An announcement said RoboCop's motorcycle was on display at the stadium and the first 10,000 fans were getting a RoboCop cheer card after getting inside.

    It's part of "RoboCop Day" in honor of the DVD release of this year's "RoboCop" remake.

    An announcement was to be made Tuesday about a RoboCop statue that's expected to be installed in Detroit this year, but that event and a police meet-and-greet were cancelled.

    A movement for the statue started in 2011 after a social networking campaign.

    The 1980s science fiction movie was set in a futuristic and crime-ridden Detroit.
