Garrett Hoelscher recalls meeting Howard Leonhardt a few days before Christmas in 2009. Leonhardt was the inventor of the TALENT heart stent and a successful serial entrepreneur; a record label, a vineyard, and a biotech companies were just a few of the many endeavors in which he was engaged. Naturally fascinated by this diverse and creative businessman, Garrett Hoelscher was captivated by his charismatic presence.
Howard and Garrett Hoelscher ended up discussing everything from the effect of appellation geography on varietals to the material science of coronary mechanics over the course of an hour. Then, as Garrett Hoelscher got up to leave, Howard mentioned that he was thinking about starting a baseball league and that he wanted to keep Hoelscher in mind for a role.
Nearly a month later, Garrett Hoelscher was surprised to receive a voicemail from a phone number he had never seen. He listened to the voicemail and then listened again. Howard had called the company Garrett Hoelscher was working for, procured his contact information and was formally offering him the position of General Manager of the league. Hoelscher took a day to deliberate and then said yes.
Garrett Hoelscher’s first task as General Manager was to locate and lock down baseball fields for a full regular season, while at the same time ramping up what would become a major advertising campaign for the 12-team league in two counties. It was a daunting task, and Hoelscher decided that the only way to succeed would be to hit the ground running. A new logo was designed and advertisements placed in local papers that announced the league’s inaugural season, upcoming tryouts, and need for support staff.
Suddenly, from working a full time job and enjoying the outdoor benefits of the laid-back Rocky Mountains, Garrett Hoelscher was in Sonoma, in the fast lane, building a minor baseball league with little more than a cell phone, a laptop, and a resolve to succeed. He interviewed hundreds of players, via cell phone, before even setting foot in California, never revealing that he was not a baseball player, but a lacrosse guy.
The biggest obstacle initially, says Garrett Hoelscher, was finding practice fields, as baseball was already the sport of choice for many middle school and high school students. Most fields were already booked for the summer. Fortunately though, a handful of schools and organizations were eager to support the cause, since the league’s mission statement was to raise funds for local charities through our proceeds.
The next challenge was to bring together a functional group of coaches and managers. The guys he recruited, says Garrett Hoelscher, were a motley crew from all different walks of life with a common passion–baseball. Forty-five out of the fifty men were older than Hoelscher by a minimum of 20 years. Luckily, says Hoelscher, he had learned that by empowering himself to succeed through determination and persistence, anything is possible. Through that outlook, he was able to gain the respect and trust of the management team. Garrett Hoelscher was committed and adaptable and his goal was for everyone to add value to the league.
Garrett Hoelscher split his time dealing with the garment company producing uniforms, merchandising, locking in fields, running an advertising campaign in print, television, and radio, recruiting umpires to officiate, planning the logistics of game days, contracting a security team, locating a food vendor to run the concession stand, recruiting an intern, announcer, and scorekeeper and sometimes, when time permitted, sleeping.
After opening day, Garrett Hoelscher continued to manage these relationships, operations, and logistics with the added challenge of settling disputes between angry managers and umpires while positively promoting the league through radio interviews. It was imperative to build strong relationships with the local newspaper columnists to generate publicity for the fledgling league, recalls Hoelscher.
All in all, concludes Garrett Hoelscher, that season spent in Northern California was an invaluable lifetime experience. The league generated tens of thousands of dollars for local school programs. Hoelscher made hundreds of good friends, some young and some old. He learned how to build and run a business and through it all, Garrett Hoelscher would develop the confidence and desire to start his own business the following year.
