52 years since their last World Series Championship title, the San Francisco Giants are pushing through their 2011 MLB season post major win with Showtime Sports camera crews in tow as they film 'The Franchise: A Season With the San Francisco Giants.' From Spring Training to on field competition and a look at their personal lives off the field, this new sports documentary is not just for baseball fans, but for sports entertainment "freaks" alike. As you'll be able to gather from the Showtime clip below, the documentary series definitely has not only a national championship team on their hands, but also a cast of characters from the team's roster. The combination of competitiveness for starting positions while having a sense of humor through it all makes this team a captivating pick for Showtime Sports. Pitcher Brian Wilson is not only famous for being the Giants' closer, but also for his dense, black beard that can be seen from the highest point in AT&T Park in San Francisco. 'The Franchise: A Season With the San Francisco Giants' will premiere on Showtime, Wednesday July 13 at 10pm ET/PT.
