Discovery Channel and MLB Network have partnered on a two-night special that will bring Discovery’s Diesel Brothers to the ballpark.

Produced by Magilla Entertainment, Diesel Brothers: The Doubleheader will showcase Heavy D, Diesel Dave, Redbeard and The Muscle as they step up to the plate to trick out Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera’s 2016 Chevrolet 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 in a statement. “I told Heavy D and Diesel Dave I wanted something big and powerful to auction off to raise money for my foundation.”

To pull off the feat, the Diesel Brothers will receive of help from two MLB Network analysts: Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez and former All-Star Carlos Peña.

Diesel Brothers: The Doubleheader debuts June 19 and June 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

The special will also air in Spanish on Discovery Español on June 19 and June 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Diesel Brothers is executive produced by Magilla Entertainment’s Matthew Ostrom, Laura Palumbo Johnson, Jason Fox and Cristin Cricco-Powell. Discovery’s Craig Coffman is executive producer; Todd Lefkowitz is producer; and Lindsay Malinchak is associate producer.
