Story


Baseball all-star Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.

Hoping to save her client's career after a team suspension, Cory's agent (Vivica A. Fox) sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future ... and win back the love he left behind ("Emma," played by Dorian Brown). With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

Based on thousands of true stories, HOME RUN is an inspirational reminder that with God, it's never too late ... freedom is possible.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..director Boyd weaves the preaching - which includes testimonials from actual recovering addicts - into the story, and thankfully avoids overly emotional hallelujah moments. For what it is, "Home Run" is a solid hit..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the message overwhelms the medium..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
“..the premise sounds like an after-school special crossed with a "Bad News Bears" reboot, but "Home Run" strives for more than studio formulas, allowing the morality play to stand on its own merit..”
by Sean O'Connell [Washington Post]
