VIDEO: Alice Cooper throws out first pitch at Detroit Tigers game

Alice Cooper is on the road this summer with Iron Maiden, joining the UK rockers for the first half of their summer “Maiden England” tour of North America.

On Wednesday, the tour rolled into Alice’s hometown of Detroit for a show at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.

The day before the concert, Alice had the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Detroit Tigers took on the visiting Los Angeles Angels at Comerica Park.

Following the pre-game event, Alice joined Fox Sports Detroit announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen in the booth, where he talked about his lifelong passion for the game.

“When I was a kid, [the] Tigers were everything,” said Alice. “My dad would take me to Briggs Stadium and see Al Kaline, [Charlie] ‘Paw Paw’ Maxwell and [Rocco ‘Rocky’] Colavito and those guys. Man, that was really great baseball when we were kids.”

Alice wraps up his dates with Maiden this weekend before heading to Europe for dates starting July 27 in Belgium.
