MLB Network's 'My MLB Life: Zimmerman' premieres on Saturday

Ryan Zimmerman has won two Silver Sluggers and a Gold Glove manning the hot corner in Washington. But what made the All-Star third baseman the player he is today?

MLB Productions takes viewers behind the scenes with the Nats star during the premiere episode of "My MLB Life: Zimmerman" on the MLB Network. Zimmerman talks about growing up on Virginia Beach, coping with his mother's diganosis of multiple sclerosis and playing AAU baseball on a team that included David Wright, Mark Reynolds and B.J. Upton. Oh and, B.J.'s kid brother, Justin, who was sometimes used as a pinch-runner.

Tune in on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 6:30 p.m. ET to watch the full episode.
