Home Runs

A home run in baseball is a ball hit so hard that the batter can circle the bases and score a run at home base.
For example, Howard hit a home run in game six of the 2009 World Series but the Phillies did not win the series. Barry Bonds hit 70 home runs in 2001, a record.
The metaphoric usage refers to something done very well, even extremely well, in other words to be a winner.
For example: ” You scored a home run with that presentation. I think we’ll get the contract.” Or “That’s a homerun. Your good work got you the contract.”
