est. 1986

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.
