South Asia sends over two prospects who really should pitch for Cleveland

19-year old Rinku Bhramdeen Singh and 20-year old Dinesh Kumar Patel were the winners of a nationwide talent search for baseball players in India called "The Million Dollar Arm Hunt" and they will now be heading to the U.S. for a year's worth of training.

The article in the Hindu  (title edited) says that Singh can hit 89 mph on the radar gun.

after watching quicksilvers picture (DT flickr) of that dude throwing 88mph I'm not to impressed with 89mph but hey who knows.

By University of South California, do they mean USC? Any chance that being taught proper mechanics could result in an increase in velocity?

love the engrish in that article:

Rinku, who can throw ball at over 89 mph and was adjudged the fastest thrower in the 'Million Dollar Arm Hunt' launched in December by an American sport firm, was on Friday felicitated by US Ambassador David C Mulford.

I guess it just is the "The Hindu." I looked at the wrong part of the title.
