On Sunday night, March 23, North Cleveland Baptist will host a free showing of the motion picture “Home Run.”

The film shares the story of a baseball star named Cory Brand. Personal challenges dating back to his childhood motivate Brand to the highest levels of baseball stardom. But they also make him susceptible to alcohol addiction.

After an on-field tirade, Brand is suspended from his major league team and ordered to return to his hometown and to coach little league baseball.

He is also required to attend a Christian-based addiction recovery program. In the process, he struggles with his checkered past and eventually finds hope and healing.

“With the opening of baseball season on all levels, from major league to T-ball, it is a great time of year to offer this showing,” says Jay McCluskey, pastor of North Cleveland Baptist Church.

“While this movie deals with some serious issues, it weaves humor, faith, and compassion into the storyline. The motion picture is ‘family friendly,’ and we welcome everyone in the Bradley County community to be part of this showing. We especially welcome players and coaches of all local baseball and softball teams.”

The viewing will take place in the church’s Activity Building and will begin promptly at 6 p.m. Free popcorn and drinks will be served.

The church is located at 2815 North Ocoee St.
