Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi Strobel Hamels, will be featured on "E! True Hollywood Story: Baseball Wives," which premieres at 10 o'clock tonight. Also on the show will be Jorge and Laura Posada (Yankees),  Scott and Carrie Proctor (Marlins), David and Ashley Eckstein (Padres), Josh and Katie Hamilton (Rangers) and Casey Daigle (Astros) and his wife Jennie Finch.

E! cameras followed the Hamelses around town. And even on the road.

To show just how tough the life of a baseball wife is, Strobel says she was taped driving a U-Haul truck from their spring training home in Clearwater, Fla., to their pad at Two Liberty Place.

The Hamelses will be in St. Louis on Monday for a celeb poker tournament sponsored by their foundation.
