Watched Million Dollar Arm over the holidays – it was quite good with excellent casting and great acting (and I always love a good sports film). I also had no idea that the movie was based on a true story, which you can read about here: The Million Dollar Arm … did you know about this?
Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh, the original final two in the Million Dollar Arm contest, were both signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates of the MLB, which is an incredible feet unto itself considering they did not grow up playing baseball. Patel’s professional career was short-lived, while Singh continues to play. The story is interesting and complex, which the movie does a fine job of representing.
