 Biographical Information
Rinku Singh had never touched a baseball before 2008, when he participated in the Indian reality show "Million Dollar Arm Hunt". He won $100,000 in the contest after maxing out at 84 mph. That convinced the Pittsburgh Pirates to sign him along with fellow contestant Dinesh Patel; they were the first Indians signed by a MLB franchise. Both of the former cricket players made their professional debuts with the GCL Pirates on July 4, 2009. Singh struck out one batter in one inning but allowed two hits and a run, not as good as Patel's debut.
Singh had a 1-2, 5.84 record in 11 games for the 2009 GCL Pirates with a 1.46 WHIP. He returned to the same team in 2010.
