So the Pirates signed two young men from India who have never played a game of baseball in their life. They were discovered (how else?) on a reality show designed to find people who could throw hard and accurately. These two guys were clocked in the 80s and 90s.
I think this only makes sense, as India is projected to surpass China as the most populous country on the planet. With a country with such cricket talent, it’s only a small step to train some of the bowlers to throw a little higher.
