DETROIT (AP) -- Everybody's favorite fictional crime-fighting cyborg is heading to Comerica Park.
RoboCop is scheduled to throw out the first pitch Tuesday evening as the Tigers play host to the Toronto Blue Jays (6 p.m. EDT pregame, 7:08 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit).
RoboCop's motorcycle will be on display at the stadium, and the first 10,000 fans will get 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.
