Desean Jackson: Home Team - Netflix
"Desean Jackson: Home Team" (formally known as The DeSean Jackson Project) is a docu-series that follows the life of NFL player, music artist, film producer, fashion label owner, music producer and label owner DeSean Jackson. Washington Redskins' wide receiver DeSean Jackson is literally at the top of his game as one of the most talked about and watched players in the NFL today. While being watched is a great thing, it means eyes are always on him– waiting for him to score touchdowns and waiting for him to drop the ball off the field. Even though he has the money and the fame, DeSean depends on the guidance of a core group of women including his "momager" Gayle, his sister and assistant A'Dreea, his publicist and his new girlfriend, Kayla.
Runtime: 30 minutes
Desean Jackson: Home Team - Lancaster Barnstormers - Netflix
The Lancaster Barnstormers are an American professional baseball team based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They are a member of the Freedom Division of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. From the 2005 season to the present, the Barnstormers have played their home games at Clipper Magazine Stadium in the city's Northwest Corridor. Baseball fans in Lancaster waited 44 years for the sport to return after the Lancaster Red Roses folded following the 1961 season. In 2003, Lancastrians chose the name “Barnstormers” in a team-sponsored fan ballot. The name refers to the act of “barnstorming”, which means to travel around an area appearing in exhibition sports events, especially baseball games. It was used to describe Lancaster's baseball teams as far back as 1906 by the Lancaster Daily Intelligencer: “There was a crowd of between seven and eight hundred persons out on Friday to see the Lancaster barnstormers play the Philadelphia Giants.” The team's primary logo was designed with local history in mind, as the team's original colors of red, navy blue, and khaki were the same as those used by the former Red Roses. The name and logo also allude to Lancaster County's agricultural heritage, notable for its inclusion of Amish culture and lore. The Barnstormers organization lightheartedly calls its market the “Pennsylvania Clutch Country,” referring to Lancaster's location in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the sports term, “clutch”. The Barnstormers represent all of Lancaster County, even though they play in the city of Lancaster. The team designates many of its home games to honor the county's smaller communities. The Lancaster Barnstormers were originally owned by Opening Day Partners (ODP), a company that specializes in baseball club and stadium operations. ODP also created Atlantic League clubs in York, Pennsylvania, Southern Maryland, and Sugar Land, Texas. On November 12, 2014, ODP transitioned their ownership of the Barnstormers to Dakota Baseball, LLC in order to complete their goal of focusing solely on the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. Dakota Baseball comprises Ian Ruzow, Rob Liss, Steve Zuckerman, and Bob Zuckerman, Lancastrians and founders of Clipper Magazine - the Barnstormers' naming rights partner.
Desean Jackson: Home Team - The beginning - Netflix
Baseball first came to Lancaster County in the 1860s by soldiers returning home from the Civil War. They learned the rules while serving in the military and wanted to continue playing. The very first professional baseball teams in Lancaster were the Lancaster Lancasters and the Lancaster Ironsides. The Lancasters played in the Keystone Association while the Ironsides played in the Eastern League, both starting in 1884. The following season, the Lancasters joined the Eastern League, and the two teams became bitter rivals. They competed against each other for fan support, league affiliation, and money at the gate. At its peak, insults and refusals to play against each other were the norm. The teams finally agreed to play each other at the end of the 1884 season, in which the Ironsides defeated the Lancasters after seven very close games. The Lancasters were the only team to continue play in the next season.
