Joe Mantegna (of “Godfather III” fame) will narrate the series, which is a joint production of MLB Productions, Al Roker Entertainment and Shoot and Move Media. Stars of the show are 3B Brian Barden, P Bill Murphy, CF Chris Young, P Casey Daigle, P Dustin Nippert and RF Carlos Quentin. Quentin and Young are now with the D’Backs.
