This is a faith based movie with a very strong biblical message. A feel good movie about family, relationships, loss, and overcoming all odds through Gods word. It will make you cry, and smile, but most of all it will bolster your faith.

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 Elliot, 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

I wasted an hour and a half of my time.
24 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie needs a new writer and director to say the least. The spiritual message may be worthwhile, but not presented this way. I've seen better high school performances. The actors were dry and could have been cardboard cut-outs for all I knew. For those of you who are old enough, I kept waiting for the family dog, Goliath, to walk up and say, "Gee Steevie, what are you going to do now?" I stuck it out to the end to see how the story line was salvaged, but couldn't get the DVD out of the player fast enough when it finished. If the movie is recast and reworked I may give it another try, but until then, I can't recommend it.
