Disney has announced the Million Dollar Arm Blu-ray release date falls on October 7. The DVD edition of the baseball film starring Jon Hamm (Mad Men) will be released the same day, though a DVD will not be included in the Blu-ray package — but a Digital HD copy will.
Million Dollar Arm is based on a true story of a sports agent who, in desperate need of finding the next Major League Baseball star, sets off to India in search of a cricket bowler (i.e. pitcher) with the necessary skill set. He finds two boys with extraordinary arms and brings them back to the United States for training and culture shock.
The Million Dollar Arm Blu-ray presentation is in the film’s original 2.39:1 aspect ratio at a resolution of 1080p, with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio support. Bonus features on the Blu-ray version include:
