JB Bernstein is a once-successful sports agent who may have to close his business. To save it, he comes up with an idea so radical it just might work. Setting off for Mumbai, JB stages a televised nationwide competition called "Million dollar arm" where two young finalists emerge as winners. JB brings them back to the US with a goal: get them signed as pitchers to a major league team. While the boys learn the game, they teach JB the meaning of teamwork and commitment, and JB finds a family.

"How fast do they pitch in cricket? Fine, bowl. How fast do they bowl in cricket?" Based on a true story of a sports agent who believed that Indian cricket players would make great baseball pitchers.

Eh. Not Disney's best effort. An interesting story but the movie itself was not really attention grabbing.

Mostly entertaining and heartfelt--I have mixed feelings politically: the tenacious, culturally insensitive investment dude making money off the Indian boys, and so forth. The movie focuses on HIS development and overdue maturation while ignoring in large part those of the boys, and especially of his tenant gf. A good story that is treated in a shallow manner. It's Disney!

This is a 2014 American baseball docudrama directed by Craig Gillespie and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the true story of baseball pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel who were discovered by sports agent J. B. Bernstein after winning a reality show competition in India.
Sharp, slickly produced addition to the Disney sports movie, this film works as both a stirring underdog tale and as a revealing look at the expanding global footprint of the American sports-entertainment machine.
Yet, this drama will give you a gripping and heart-warming satisfaction at the end.
