The film is narrated by rapper and actor Ludacris, a native of Atlanta where Sanders played football for the Falcons and baseball for the Braves. Sanders holds the distinction as being the only athlete ever to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl. Also, “Prime Time,” the only person ever to score a touchdown and hit a home run during the same week.
The film chronicles Sanders amazing 24-hour feat in October of 1992 when he played in a pro football game in-between a pair of postseason baseball games in two different cities, all located one thousand miles apart.
Sanders, along with Bo Jackson, broke all the rules of professional sports as Black athletes who played multiple sports at the same time. The film will break down the pros and cons, the praise and criticism that Sanders received for his efforts.
The premiere of “Deion’s Double Play” is on Thursday at 9 p.m. on ESPN.
