What better way to promote the release of RoboCop on Blu-ray (out now) then by having RoboCop throw out the first pitch at a Tigers game! Yes, this really happened Maniacs!
Press Release: ROBOCOP officially took over the city of Detroit today as the crime fighter hit the streets to meet and take pictures with fans in celebration of #ROBOCOPDay and the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film. ROBOCOP visited iconic landmarks including The Monument to Joe Louis, The Spirit of Detroit, 8 Mile and Comerica Park. Additionally ROBOCOP visited top radio stations at Clear Channel, CBS Radio and Greater Media Detroit, and even did the weather on WJBK-TV, the local Fox affiliate. The day concluded as he threw the ceremonial first pitch at the beginning of the game between the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays, with the first 10,000 fans receiving a commemorative ROBOCOP poster and some lucky fans taking home a copy of the new Blu-ray. ROBOCOP took photos with players, invaded the press box and kept the peace with passionate fans.
Here are some photos from the day’s event courtesy of FOX. The video is from Fox Sports Detroit.
