Oh, what a fun audiobook!! This is the true story of a U.S. sports agent, author J.B. Bernstein, who decides to try to replicate the Yao Ming story of a foreign national who became an NBA superstar by launching a reality show in India to find gifted pitchers to bring to the U.S. to launch baseball careers. Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel win the Indian competition and accompany J.B. back to the U.S. He gets them situated in a large house near USC and they put their hearts and souls into training to hopefully try out for a minor league baseball team.
That's the baseball story but the transformation of all involved is where the real story lies. The sports agent learns to care about someone beyond himself, the boys grow into men, and... well, you'll have to listen to the book to find out how it ends. This is one of those wonderful audiobooks where the narration is so perfectly paired to the story that at one point I checked to see if the author was also narrator... the pacing, mood, and tone is pitch-perfect. This was a delightfully fun listen for a spring weekend that I recommend to anyone who enjoys a good story, baseball fan or not.
