Finding clients has proven difficult for them, until he comes up with a radical new idea after watching a game of cricket on TV. Bernstein goes to India to create a reality show in search of the fastest pitcher the country has to offer. The winner of the reality show wins $1 million, and the top two winners get the chance to travel to the United States and tryout for a professional MLB team.
While there, Bernstein and his team discover Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel, two boys from poor villages in India with incredible potential. After winning the contest, they are whisked away to Los Angeles where they have six months to train before their tryouts.
