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

Has Heart
10 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Wonderful, feel-good family picture with a lot of good heart and great sport. I like its message, that its Christian and current. Some sweet shots and awesome tunes. Friday Night Lights meets The Blind Side. Shows us that having a relationship with God, throughout the toughest moments in your life, that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I particularly enjoyed the guy who played the current baseball star, the young blonde kid. Solid, well-developed character. His subtlety in portraying 'real' truly shines. Like to see that promising actor in more pictures. Inspirational and great film overall. I'd love to see another by these guys. -R
