If you have not heard of it, The Franchise is a documentary type of show about the 2010 World Series champions, the San Francisco Giants. They talk about new players, players getting cut, what they worked on during off-season, and so forth. It’s basically a “Hard Knocks” for baseball.
The Franchise premiered July 13th on SHOWTIME SPORTS. I just got done watching it, I would rate it 5 stars, no doubt.
One scene that really interested me was when Brandon Belt is in Bruce Bochy’s office and Bochy announces to him that he made the team. It was a very emotional time for Belt, as well for me! Doing it big in baseball is a huge dream for me, so maybe I don’t know how Belt felt at the moment, but I may know a similar feeling.
New episodes are every Wednesday night, and I strongly recommend you sports fans to check it out. Either order SHOWTIME or find it online, or something. It’s an hour that would not be wasted.
