Home Run by Travis Thrasher *A Review

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 baseball 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.

A novel based on the major motion picture starring Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod, Home Run is an inspirational story of the hope and freedom God offers each of us.

Home Run by Travis Thrasher Is a very good book. It tells about a man that made many mistakes in his life. He believes it all to be his father’s fault with the way he was mentally abused when he was growing up. He just doesn’t want to take the blame for anything he does wrong. His life is out of control, but he doesn’t see it. So many people love him, but he keeps pushing them away.
   I enjoyed reading this book and felt it was truly one worth reading over. Cory has to learn many important things and go through lots of hard times before he is willing to give everything over to God. Cory finds out that nothing will work or change without God in your life. You can’t do it by yourself. Home Run is also about forgiving yourself and others and how to make each second count. I recommend this book.
