He decided to search for a “million dollar arm” – or baseball pitcher to us - and he would find his candidate in ...India. Featuring his search on a reality TV show he would bring the successful entrants to the US and put them through an intensive training course to set them on the track for baseball magic. Will his quest succeed, could it be done, will he find his million dollar arm?

Synopsis

Million Dollar Arm Sometimes to Win, You Have to Change the Game by J. B. Bernstein

JB Bernstein seemed to have it all. One of the top sports agents in the US, he worked hard and enjoyed the bachelor lifestyle to the full.

But he hankered for more, and when he set himself a challenge - to unearth someone in India capable of becoming a pro baseball pitcher - most people thought he was mad and doomed to face a costly and public failure. The reality show Million Dollar Arm brought thousands of contestants hoping for a shot at glory, but eventually they unearthed two candidates: Rinku and Dinesh. Bernstein brought them back to the US, put them up in his home and helped them to get used to a very different world, while they also worked hard to learn the game that was second nature to most American sportsmen. Finally, they got their chance and - against all the odds - they were both awarded pro contracts. This heartwarming story has now been made into a film starring Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Suraj Sharma (The Life of Pi). A true-life version of Slumdog Millionaire meets Friday Night Lights, Million Dollar Arm shows what can happen when you dream big.
