Vivica A. Fox is ready to play moneyball. The actress just wrapped filming indie baseball drama Home Run, in which she plays a sports agent whose client, a ballplayer with a substance-abuse problem, finds redemption coaching a little league team.

 

For Fox, the heartfelt story shot on location in Tulsa, Oklahoma, came at the perfect time:

 

"I've had major epiphanies in the last couple of years, to be very honest with you,” she tells the Tulsa News (via Shadow and Act). "I’ve focused on my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, so I can experience all the blessings that he has for me."

 

“I was really excited about doing this movie. It’s Christian-based, and I’m an absolute sports junkie. I grew up playing basketball, volleyball and track, and I was a cheerleader...so this was a good fit.”

 

Fox will next be seen in the Hallmark Channel original holiday film Annie Clause Is Coming to Town, airing December 10.
