Baseball- and softball-themed entertainment center Home Run Dugout will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its new facility in Katy on Monday, June 6. According to Colby Smith, general manager of the Katy location, the Round Rock-founded venue will officially open in early 2023.

“Round Rock was our first proof-of-concept facility,” Smith said. “Following that location’s success, we are building our first full-scale standalone facility in Katy, Texas.”

The 46,000-square-foot venue will feature 12 of Home Run Dugout’s patented Batting Bays, with soft-toss pitching machines suited for patrons of any skill level; a full-service restaurant and two bars with elevated ballpark-themed cuisine; indoor and outdoor dining; a beer garden; a concert stage and a whiffle ball field.

Located at 1220 Grand West Blvd., Katy, near the intersection of the Grand Parkway and Katy Freeway, the entertainment center will be next to Andretti Indoor Karting.
