A very interesting story I heard about this past fall is playing out before our eyes here. We are stationed at the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training facility, so we see the big league guys, 40 man roster players, and a few minor league guys working out here. We also often see the first 2 players from India ever to be signed to pro baseball contracts. Read this story to find out more about this very intriguing experiment the Pirates have chosen to follow.
I saw them playing catch yesterday for the first time, and they are not bad actually. Their mechanics are a bit raw, and the taller, younger lefty throws harder, but they are both work in the making.
