Disney's Million Dollar Arm Movie In Theatres May 16th & CONTEST! 7 Canadian Cities (~OVER~)

Disney's Million Dollar Arm Film
In Theatres May 16th, 2014
My dad is a gigantic baseball fan and has watched Field of Dreams with Kevin Kostner about a gazillion time.  I can't tell you how many conversations have ended in the whispered punchline and lesson: "If you build it, they will come!"  Me, I'm up to watching a Toronto Blue Jays home game every season, and would love to watch them win another World Series in 2014!  I'd even be elated to see the Jays make it to the World Series, and feel the intense buzz of hopefulness and pride around town!

On the topic of baseball, Disney's Million Dollar Arm movie comes to theatres on May 16th!  It's based on the true story of sports agent J.B Bernsteain (Jon Hamm), who set out to find baseball's next all-start pitcher.  J.B. travels to India, hoping to find a young cricket player that he can turn into a major league baseball star.

Once there, he cleverly produces a reality show contest called: "The Million Dollar Arm."  With the help of retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), J.B. discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal from Slumdog Millionaire), and Rinku (Suraj Sharma from Life of Pi).  Dinesh and Rinku are 18-year olds who can throw a great fastball, but are unknowledgeable about baseball.  

In the hopes of signing the young men to major league baseball contracts, J.B. brings Dinesh and Rinku to America to start training.  As they learn baseball inside out, J.B--with the help of insightful friend Brenda (Lake Bell)--learns important lessons about teamwork, commitment, and what it truly means to be a family.
