“Diesel Brothers” two-night special “The DoubleHeader” kicks off tonight, Monday June 19 on Discovery, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT. There’s baseball in the air, and three of MLB’s biggest stars join Heavy D, Diesel Dave, Redbeard and The Muscle. Yes, DieselSellerz goes to the ballpark for some major league fun.
Along for the fun are Detroit Tigers’ superstar Miguel Cabrera, Hall of Fame pitcher, and current MLB Network analyst Pedro Martinez, with his network buddy, former All-Star Carlos Peña. In the preview clip posted below, watch Heavy D come up to the plate to face Pedro, a man known for his change-up and giving batters some “chin music”, up tight and in! Check out the youth baseball photo of the Diesel Brother in the clip!
Then the Bros get into their area of expertise and take Carlos Peña into a world where they are way more confident. Catch the glee on Peña’s face in the clip below after he takes a tricked out ATV for a spin through some mud and water. The former slugger can’t stop smiling as he declares the vehicle ready for anything. He likens it to the “controlled aggression” needed to succeed at the plate.
Tigers’ first baseman and car enthusiast, Miguel Cabrera asked the boys to trick out his 2016 Chevy Silverado. “I was excited to have the Diesel Brothers build a truck for me because my grandfather was a mechanic in Venezuela and my dad likes to watch the show,” Cabrera said. “I told Heavy D and Diesel Dave I wanted something big and powerful to auction off to raise money for my foundation.”
In addition, the DIESEL BROTHERS have created two UTVs (utility task vehicles) inspired by the American League and National League that will be on display at MLB All-Star FanFest, the world’s premiere interactive baseball theme park, from July 7-11 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in the lead up to Major League Baseball’s 88th Midsummer Classic at Marlins Park.
“Diesel Brothers: Double Header” will also air in Spanish on Discovery Español on June 19 and June 26 at 10pm ET/PT. Image/video credit: Discovery Communications, used with permission
