One thing that I thought was cool was that the main characters are from my home state. Coming from Oklahoma, I will be honest and say that I share a lot of the same feelings with Cory about the state. You'll have to read the book to find out what those are... Of course, maybe they'll be in the movie. I do suggest the book though!
Home Run—The Novel
It's never too late.
Baseball star Cory Brand knows how to win. But off the field, he's spiraling out of control. Haunted by old wounds and regrets, his future seems as hopeless as his past.
Until one moment—one mistake—changes everything. To save his career, Cory must go back to the town where it all began. His plan is simple: coach the local Little League team, complete a recovery program, and get out as fast as possible. Instead, he runs headfirst into memories he can't escape ... and the love he left behind.
Faced with a second chance he never expected, Cory embarks on a journey of faith, transformation and redemption. And along the way, he discovers a powerful truth: no one is beyond the healing of God.
The movie will be released on April 12, 2013.
