Storyline

Baseball superstar Jimmy Easton returns home after a devastating knee injury cuts short his promising career. In search of a new purpose for his life, Jimmy faces dark memories from his past as he tries to make peace with a world he once left behind. His life takes a transforming turn when he is involuntarily thrust back into the world of baseball - not as a player, but as the coach of an underachieving college team struggling to rise above mediocrity. Coach Jimmy's rocky relationship with Brandon Elliott, the team's only star, forces both of them to deal with their similarly checkered pasts. One Hit From Home is a unique sports drama that explores the unpredictability of life and reminds us that we can find hope in the midst of broken dreams. Written by jem2334

Quotes

Judge Julius Smith: Went ahead and pulled your previous arrest record, Jimmy. Seems you've been QUITE the model citizen. Kind of reminds me of the old baseball adage: Three strikes and you're out, son. Let me be blunt: You eiter coach the team or go to jail. You decide.

Good faith sports drama
14 August 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The producing team of Davy Stone and John Meier took the two lead roles in One Hit From Home. Davy Stone plays a washed up ballplayer whose career took a nosedive after his parents were killed in a car crash. Meier who was 31 when the film was made is sadly way too old for the part of a young college baseball prodigy. In fact the only star for the Arizona State University team where Stone has returned to take a job as coach.

Both of these people and the team in general need a lot of motivation. Meier is dealing with an alcoholic father who can't cope with the death of his wife. Both of their inabilities to deal with family tragedy is the bond they share.

It's also the basis of the Christian underpinning of this sports drama. It is a Christian film but it is also suitable for mainstream audiences and has a good message to it about you never know what life will bring you around the next corner, good or bad.
