Home Run

Summary:
Big dreams and big plays have led professional baseball player Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) far from home...but the memories of his abusive father continue to haunt him. Growing up with an alcoholic father, the sport was his only hope for approval. Now, as a popular big leaguer, his approval comes from his adoring fans. That’s until a booze-fueled on-the-field meltdown carries over into the dugout, where Cory’s antics injure an honorary batboy. As if that’s not bad enough, the whole rampage is captured on national television.

Suspended by his team, Cory’s high-powered agent steps in. Helene cooks up a public-relations ploy that sends Cory back to his small Oklahoma hometown. Her best-laid plans, however, crash spectacularly when Cory’s DUI lands his brother in the hospital. After years of hard partying and reckless living, the DUI and team suspension make him desperate to save his career.Forced to coach the local Little League team and spend eight weeks in a faith-based recovery program (Celebrate Recovery), Cory must face old wounds, new adversaries . . . and the love he left behind. His journey leads him to a truth more powerful than he ever imagined—and toward the most important play of his life.

The story of a man that faces the pain he tried to ignore. The girl he wanted to forget. The secret he never knew. The story of a man who runs away...and find his home"

Alternative summary:
Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) is a big hitter for big league baseball’s Colorado Grizzlies . . . he’s also a man with a hot temper and a serious addiction to alcohol. When an on-field, on-camera outburst causes a PR nightmare, the team suspends Cory and requires him to get help in a 12-step program. Guided by his agent, Helene (Vivica A. Fox), who does whatever it takes to get Cory back on top, Cory returns to his rural Oklahoma hometown. This is a place Cory had fled years before, leaving behind terrible memories of an abusive, alcoholic father along with the results of his own terrible choices. At first scorning the town and the idea of a recovery program, Corey begins to pursue something other than baseball. The winner looks like he might lose everything, sabotaged by his inability to change. Will Cory keep striking out, or will he finally find his way home.
