Synopsis by Scott Elrod, plays the lead role of Cory Brand:
Big dreams and big plays have led professional baseball player Cory Brand 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, 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.
