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

Good story
30 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Good story to this movie, though it has been done before. The only thing making this movie a 4 instead of 8 is the acting of Jimmy Easton character (David Aaron Stone). If this movie had big names in it and better acting it would be a blockbuster! The actor playing the up and coming baseball star did a fantastic job. The ending of the movie was really well built up and I enjoyed the story of it. Having said all of that I am a big fan of the sports feel good movies! I watched it with my son who is 12 and he very enjoyed it. It's one of the few movies that you can watch without pointless swearing. I don't mind swearing in movies, in some movies it really is needed. What I don't like is when they do it just to try and get the count up!
