Rinku Singh - 2011-12 Adelaide Bite

Singh was a rarity in the ABL - a player who actually transferred between teams, having played 2010-11 for the Canberra Cavalry, he ended up playing for the Adelaide Bite in 2011-12. He already had a level of fame before coming to Australia, with the tale of his winning a reality TV Show "The Million Dollar Arm", which was based around finding a potential baseball prospect amongst the people of India. Beating out over 37,000 prospects he won the show, and was taken to try out in the US, where he was signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is currently playing for the Pirates A class affiliate, the West Virginia Power, in the South Atlantic League.

Whilst not the best of photos, I couldn't help but put together a card for this son of a poor Indian Truck Driver, now a baseball prospect wearing his newly found bling (check out the gold chain around his neck) on the fields of Australian baseball.
