San Francisco Giants To Star In Showtime Series

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5 / AP) — Showtime said it’s teaming with the San Francisco Giants for a baseball program that will follow the defending World Series champs this season.

The series, in collaboration with Major League Baseball Productions, is being shot over 10 months, Showtime announced Friday. It will chronicle the lives of Giants players and coaches during the offseason, at spring training in Scottsdale, Ariz., and at games.

The as-yet-untitled series is set to debut with a preview episode tied to the opening of the 2011 baseball season, followed by a run of episodes during the season’s second half.

The Giants defeated the Texas Rangers to give San Francisco its first World Series trophy.

Hell of a run-on sentence. Go Giants!
