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

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.

Draws from other baseball and sports flicks but still a good view, with values
27 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Jimmie Easton (David Aaron Stone) was once a promising baseball player, with the SF Giants. But, just look at him now! After a blown knee and the auto accident death of his parents, he is drinking and drifting. Fortunately, before he hits rock bottom, he is offered a coaching job with a struggling college program. But, it requires moving back to his home town. Thus, Jimmie comes back to his roots with a bad attitude about absolutely everything. On top of it all, he believes he can just "drift" in his job, as the team has never been a winner. Meanwhile, a talented player, Brandon, on Jim's team is likewise having issues. He has a new girlfriend but thinks her parents don't like him. More important, Brandon's mother died two years ago and his father has gone a bit crazy with grief. If anything bothers him, he takes out his anger on Brandon, to the point of physical abuse. One more complication is present. A former flame of Jimmie's is still in town, teaching and looking very pretty in her single state. But, since Jimmie broke her heart once, will she be interested in seeing him again? This film draws from many other films, like The Mighty Ducks (without the humor), Hardball or League of Their Own. Its the coach on the ropes with nowhere to go but up, who still turns losers into champions. BUT, with such a winning formula, what's wrong with a new redo? As a Pureflix film, this one also has no objectionable language or sexual situations. Yet, it does have scenes of alcohol abuse, bar fighting, and family abuse, perhaps making it unsuitable for some younger viewers. Scott does a nice job as the lead and the rest of the cast, unfamiliar, do fine work in their respective roles. Good scenery, costumes, script, and direction make it nice view for an evening's entertainment.
