Editorial Reviews

Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control. Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible. As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard-hitting subject! July 16, 2013
Format:DVD
Having been invited to watch this movie in it's first week at the local movie theater by the mom of one of the production crew, I was mostly accepting her invitation, to be a supportive friend & have some popcorn! A baseball movie doesn't sound very interesting! Even my teenage son declined to come, saying: "You lost me at 'Baseball'"

But I was taken into another world, starting with the FIRST scene: a painful flashback to a childhood trauma, then brought up to speed with the main character's life. At that point I was emotionally invested and completely engaged. Poignant soundtrack: I bought two songs for my itunes playlist. Deals head-on with some very tough subjects, and follows through on some realistic, genuine, and touching outcomes. "Life isn't perfect, but you need to step up to the plate and give it your best try." I want to get a copy of this movie and see it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, shocking, a "sleeper" comes to life ! August 6, 2013
Format:DVD
I had no idea what to expect from this gift DVD movie and let me tell you, it was a complete shock. I am so pleased to say that while it was given to me because it was filmed in my hometown, it absolutely blew me away for so many reasons.

This is beautifully filmed, sensitive to the content and intent of the creators, and "it brings it home." The casting is superb and the choice of Scott Elrod is brilliant. His ability to "be" Cory Brand is nothing short of winning; winning you over, winning your approval, winning your desire to really gain all you can from this film.

The message of course is powerful, but the fact that this could have been perceived as "just a churchy, Christian" film, shows how well written, acted and presented this drama was. It is not overdone, it is believable and one feels they have "been there" and can relate. For me it was double the experience having been filmed in my hometown. One can believe this is their hometown experience, their "revisiting" the ghosts of their past, their "second chance at life" and during the credits the real people of Okmulgee, Oklahoma who played roles, are revealed as are their 'stories' in a unique play of "character baseball cards".

Hooray for "Hollywood" so to speak. This one "knocks it out of the park" (pun intended.) Author Joyce Godwin Grubbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story of surrender! July 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the movie and bought a license to show to our youth group. Invite the family and the community to hear and see what God can do when we surrender our struggles to Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Insightful Movie July 31, 2013
Format:DVD
HOME RUN is a well written powerful story about a baseball player named Cory Brand who had many challenges as a young boy growing up with a difficult father. He took those feelings of abandonment and disappointment into his adult life which led him to make choices which were not the best for him or his career.

Meeting the right people while coaching a little league baseball team in his home town helped him to learn to forgive, trust in God, and acknowledge his abuse of alcohol. He was able to then move on in his life which brought him love, acceptance, redemption, and hope.

It is a family movie but I am not sure young children will understand the major theme. I think watching it with older children, middle school and high school children could lead to a family discussion about the theme of the movie and the choices we make and consequences they have in our lives.

I feel it is a movie worth watching. It definitely has application to our lives today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see!!! October 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this movie and watched it twice the first day. Great acting and it keeps you guessing as to what will happen. I love the truth of how generational problems in families carry on until someone decides to make a change. Great things don't happen if you hold back!!! Good movie

3.0 out of 5 stars Double, caught in pickle. April 26, 2014
By coach
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Starts out strong and hooks you. Then it like they needed to get the message out about redemption and reconciliation that it overshadows what could have been a better movie and still had the message.
