Home Run Stadium History
The Home Run Stadium batting cages started in 1986 as 'Danny's Dugout', then owned by Mesa native Danny Lee. A few years later in 1991 the batting cages was purchased by Richard Oltmann of Chicago who incorporated a new kind of pitching machine "Robo Pitch", thus the new business name 'Robo Pitch Stadium'. The "Robo Pitch" pitching machine was a Japanese made machine that incorporated life-like pitching machine to deliver pitches to batters. And then in 1996 the current owner and operator, Roc Rothchild took over the business and Home Run Stadium started.
Current owner and operator Roc Rotchchild is a veteran having served in the United States Marine Corps in the early 70's, with also having a father who served in World War II and a son who also served in the US Army. Roc lead a career in the banking industry after his military service, and after retiring from the field of work turned to the batting cage business. Roc is a long time active member of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars here in Mesa (Dode Morris Post 1760), and has three children.
