Hardball, the hard way

‘Million Dollar Arm’ inspires with true story of Indian pitchers

Million Dollar Arm is your traditional sports flick. It’s based on a true story, so if you’re curious, have access to Google, or follow baseball to some degree, you may know Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh. In 2008, they were victorious on the Indian reality series Million Dollar Arm and won the opportunity to train for a shot in the major leagues.

But Million Dollar Arm isn’t so much the story of Dinesh and Rinku as it is J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), the scout who first came up with the idea to take baseball (or, at least, a baseball-themed reality show) to Southern Asia. Because this is a Disney pic, and that is the typical Disney sports formula. Consider Miracle and Remember the Titans, two incredible athletic stories that were less about the athletes, and more about the coaches – played by Kurt Russell and Denzel Washington, respectively. But that’s not such a bad thing, because Million Dollar Arm benefits from the endless charm of Mad Men star Hamm. > Read more.
