“Home Run” touches ’em all

By Tom Siebert

Home Run is a small-budget film featuring mostly unknown actors. So I wasn’t expecting Citizen Kane or The Godfather Part II. But Home Run hit home with me like no other film I have ever seen. It is the story of a pro baseball player whose alcohol-fueled destructiveness lands him in a Christ-centered, Bible-based, 12-step program called Celebrate Recovery. Home Run insightfully touches the bases of big hurts, homecoming, and healing. Two thumbs up for this edifying masterpiece and both hands held high in praise of the redemptive grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
