RoboCop, Nick Fairley Throws Out The First Pitch at Comerica Park

Owing entirely to his lack of anything better to do, the author has decided to present the following (totally unedited) photo of the individual RoboCop, Nick Fairley tossing out the ceremonial first pitch at last night’s Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball game.


Half Detroit Lions defensive tackle, half cyborg law enforcement agent is what he is.

One must be careful, however, when hanging around the pitcher’s mound at Comerica Park these days. The present author has it on high authority that merely owning something close to a pulse is qualification enough to pitch in the late innings.

Might be that RoboCop, Nick Fairley has had enough of chasing quarterbacks by day and fighting crime by night. Might be that he’s the next closer for the Detroit Tigers.
