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

Christian movie with predictable, but meaningful story
6 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I enjoyed watching this movie. It is a lower-budget production, without fancy special effects, but it's wholesome with a predictable, but meaningful storyline. If you are looking for non-stop action, you won't find it in this thoughtful film, which may surprise some who have come to expect that. But you also won't find explicit language and other themes that seem to be a routine part of hit movies. For me, that was refreshing. I was a little surprised at the vehemence of some of the reviews against this simple, straight-forward movie. If you're not interested in Christian themes, it may be a little boring, but hardly objectionable. I even enjoyed the music in the film, which I was not able to find. From me, it's a thumbs up for a sweet film for the whole family.
