India's top pitchers try out for MLB scouts


"Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh had never seen a baseball before they entered and won a contest in their native India in February by throwing one very fast. Curious Major League Baseball scouts were impressed Thursday by how far the two 19-year-old former javelin throwers have progressed as they tried out at the Physiotherapy Sports Clinic in Tempe..." They're a pair of former javelin throwers, and one was clocked at 94 mph in their session. There's a billion people in India...sure a few of them have the right stuff. You can find out more about the event here: I particularly liked their impressions of college football. :-)
