Down here in Arizona, there are a couple of 19 year old kids from India getting their shot at making it to professional baseball in America.  I was reading this fascinating article in the USA Today about these pitchers named Singh & Patel, who will be throwing tomorrow in Tempe, AZ in front of pro scouts.  Turns out Barry Bonds’ agent held a Million Dollar Arm contest and one of the guys was awarded $100,000, plus the opportunity to show what he could do.  This kid’s father drives a truck of produce in India, which earns him $25 per month.  I’m gonna try to get an in person look at these tryouts.
