From the farmlands of India to the fields of major league baseball, this fascinating memoir tells the story of a man who forever changed the lives of two talented young men through a pitching contest in India. Also a major motion picture from Walt Disney, starring Jon Hamm, coming May 16
J.B. Bernstein had reached the pinnacle of his profession. As the founder of his own sports agency, he represented such superstar athletes as Barry Bonds, Emmitt Smith, and Barry Sanders. He was on a first-name basis with icons like Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky. He enjoyed all the perks and prestige that came with his enormous and enviable success.
And yet, in 2007, J.B. left this life behind and traveled across the world to begin a search for baseball talent in a country where America's favorite pastime is utterly foreign--India. There he conducted "The Million Dollar Arm," a reality TV contest to win one million dollars and the possibility of pitching in the big leagues. In the process, J.B. discovered the first two Indian-born athletes ever to sign contracts with a professional US sports team--forever changing their lives as well as his own.
Much like "The Blind Side "and "Born to Run," "Million Dollar Arm "is an inspiring sports drama of victory over incredible odds. It is a thought-provoking document of our globalizing world. It is an insider's look at sports business in the twenty-first century. And above all, it is a timeless story of baseball and the American dream.
