Quick hits

• Former University of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson threw out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday, a one-hopper that bounced to the edge of the dirt before reaching ceremonial catcher Smyly. Robinson, who was in Atlanta to watch the Michigan men's basketball team in the Final Four, flew back to Detroit on Tuesday morning to make it. "I babied it," Robinson said of the throw. "I should've just thrown the ball."

• The Miguel Cabrera Foundation and The Detroit Tigers Foundation raised more than $56,000 at the live auction at Cabrera's fundraising dinner Monday night. Cabrera also received a $10,000 donation personally from Hunter.
