Frequently Asked Questions
What is Home Run Dugout?
We are a baseball/softball themed entertainment venue that features two state-of-the-art batting bays™ equipped with proprietary ground-up, soft-toss pitching machines. Guests compete in fun, social games tailored to all skill levels. In addition to our unique entertainment, we offer a full-service bar and restaurant which can cater to all group sizes.
How much baseball/softball experience do I need?
None! Our games are custom-tailored to your skill level, whether you're a seasoned veteran or have never held a bat in your life. The ground-up pitching machine™ is easy to hit, and can accommodate guests ages 6 and older. All minors must be accompanied by an adult or legal guardian.
How many people can you accommodate?
We accept bookings for individuals, groups, and parties of ANY size… But for gameplay enthusiasts, the optimal group size is about 8-12 guests per bay. If you have more than 250 people, we can still accommodate your group, just give us a call and we will work with you to make it happen.
How many people can play at once?
Each bay can comfortably accommodate up to 20 guests. However, for the best gameplay experience, the optimal size is about 8-12 guests per bay. We are ready for all your friends and family!
How is Home Run Dugout's technology unique?
Our “secret sauce” is a proprietary ground-up, soft-toss pitching machine which can safely deliver pitches to any quadrant of the strike-zone. That means people can ditch the helmet and there is no risk of foul balls. Each ball pops up from the ground and can be controlled by spectators and opponents sitting behind the batter using a touch-screen user interface. We utilize augmented reality to gamify the batting experience which includes simulating your hit in any professional stadium.
Do you serve food and beverages?
Home Run Dugout is a full-service experience, and our menu is gourmet spin on ballpark favorites. The bar will be fully stocked as well. Dripping Springs Distilling will have specialty cocktails alongside some of the best craft brewery beers and wines Texas has to offer.
How does gameplay work?
We track the exit velocity (how fast the ball is hit), launch angle, distance, and direction of your hits and display them on multiple screens. Pick your favorite professional ballpark, start taking some swings, and watch the Home Runs fly!
