Here's one that I just across:
A sports management company sponsored a contest & reality tv show in India to find the 'million dollar arm'. The winners of the first season – two villagers from Uttar Pradesh – were signed by the Pirates and learning the game (they had to be trained to wear a glove, having been used to catching the ball bare-handed, cricket-style). They are keeping a blog here (and clearly learning English but it is refreshingly authentic).
In a cricket-mad country, there ought to be some good arms out there that can be trained to be baseball pitchers, although baseball is a lot harder to pick up than, say football (soccer) or basketball, in terms of the nuances & strategy. But here's wishing Rinku & Dinesh the best of luck!
