Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

A must-stop destination for many sports fans these days is Our Baseball Yatra, the blog written by Rinku Singh and Dinesh Kumar Patel, the Indian teenagers who recently signed pro contracts with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Despite having grown up in small villages in India and never having picked up a baseball until this year, the two pitchers worked out for scouts recently and forced the Pirates to come calling. And now, according to their blog, Hollywood may be following suit.


Writes Dinesh:

We have been spending free time meeting with many movies and TV peoples. it is unreal to believe someday our friends could see film about me and Rinku.

Today we meet movie giant Mark Sir. He make many good American movies — but most important — he knows The ROCK… ROCK my favorite actor so I took a picture with him. Mark sir is holding a photo with him and the ROCK. As they say in US… “Awesome”

Mark would be Mark Ciardi, producer of The Game Plan, which would explain how the two met The Rock. Meanwhile, production is set to resume on The Million Dollar Arm, the pitching contest which Rinku won earlier this year that earned the pair the trip to the U.S. in the first place.

But that movie, that should be something. Who will play the two leads? Deadspin tipster Adam: "I am counting down the days until tickets go on sale at Fandango."
