Home run: "A hit that allows the batter to make a complete circuit of the diamond and score a run."
So, the speaker is telling someone that his/her son hit a home run last night.
The other person then says 'Wow. That's great! Good job! = Good for him!'

Hanan, the question is related to baseball, if you haven't worked that out.

By the way, Hanan68, if you're interested in baseball, a home-run is frequently called a homer
