If you’re a fan of HBO’s Hard Knocks, then you may want to take a gander at Showtime’s upcoming docuseries The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants.

As EW first reported in January, the new series will give viewers a “front row seat into the lives of the players, coaches and team.” It bows July 13, but the pay cabler will offer a 30-minute preview of the docuseries on April 13 to coincide with the start of the baseball season.

Here’s a sneak peek. Special mention to outfielder Andres Torres, who breaks a sweat in nothing but his True Religion jeans.
