The documentary Home Run Dugout tells the true story of a group of people who are working together to make their goal a reality. Nick Hermandorfer, whose last name possibly translates to “Home Run,” is the self-proclaimed “number one drafted little leaguer in all of Texas,” and Tyler “Bam Bam” Bambrick first became acquainted with one another through Nick’s younger brother AJ, who serves as the Cooper Manning of this tale. Nick had recently graduated from the UT’s business school, and Tyler had recently completed his five-year commitment to the military. During their time together on a fishing boat in Canada, the two shared stories about their lives and pondered life after graduation and military service.
They were all in agreement that hitting a home run was the most exhilarating experience they could ever recall, and they desired to give others the opportunity to share in that sensation. Nick had the idea to construct a venue that emphasized the joy associated with baseball and downplayed its intimidating aspects. Someplace that acquaintances, coworkers, and dates may go to impress one another without having to resort to throwing fastballs or wearing sweaty rented helmets. There’s a good reason why people don’t go out on first dates to places like batting cages. Who’s up for some popcorn for dinner?
After then, Tyler told the story of a dream he’d had about working in baseball one day, a dream that he’d only ever told his wife, Katherine. In the dream, Tyler was a player for a baseball team. She was completely committed to helping him see the project through and she gave her word that she would do so. It turned out that this would require postponing their wedding. What a wonderful woman to have as a spouse! When they arrived back to American soil, they discussed it with their fathers and received the same surprising piece of advice: do it now, before commitments and expectations start to get in the way and prevent you from doing it. And here we were under the impression that fathers were meant to live vicariously through their children.
Home Run Dugout, a stand-alone complex in Katy, Texas, is about to break ground today with the support of friends, family, and eventually a few investors. The complex will feature 12 simulated hitting bays, more than 20 craft beers, a menu that is suitable for the brunch crowd, a dog park, live music, and a backyard mini-field. In a nutshell, everything that can’t be found anywhere else is found here. Pursuing one’s aspirations is, without fail, a wise course of action. Even if it means you have to postpone your wedding, sleep in a warehouse, take a shower at a gym, keep your business open during an epidemic, and labor around the clock. Because when everything is said and done, you’ll be able to look back and understand why you did it.
