What does a reality show and an Indian cricket player have in common? Not much, unless you're a down-on-your-luck sports agent by the name of J.B. Bernstein who, in 2008, concocted a most unusual recruitment scheme to find an Indian Cricket player with potential to play pro baseball here in the United States. Warm-hearted and inspirational, this sports biography from Walt Disney Pictures would be a home run in any family ballpark.
