Plot: In a last ditch effort to save his career as a sports agent, JB Bernstein 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 ‘Million Dollar Arm.’ With the help of a cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout, he discovers two 18 year old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball.
