Million Dollar Arm – In Theaters NOW!

In Walt Disney Pictures’ drama “Million Dollar Arm,” the fate of JB Berstein’s career as a sports agent rests with finding an exceptionally gifted young cricket pitcher in India, who can be trained for an American major league baseball team.
Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds 
that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his 
career. In a last-ditch effort to save his livelihood, he concocts a 
scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young 
cricket pitcher he can turn into a Major League Baseball star, JB travels 
to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million 
Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed red 
baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played 
by Madhur MiƩ al from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by 
Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea 
about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping 
to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings 
the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely 
out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural 
villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the 
boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming 
friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, 
commitment and what it means to be a family.
Don’t forget the tissues! Per Disney’s usually heart-warming, entertaining, story line, there is always a lesson to be learned, and Million Dollar Arm is no exception.  So make sure you grab the tissues and popcorn and make your way to the #MillionDollarArmEvent!!
