The batting tee is the most important piece of equipment a hitter can utilize. Some travel ball players think using a tee is just for little kids. This could not be further from the truth. Major League players use tees everyday to maintain their strengths and work on improving parts of their swing.
There are many different types of batting tees. My favorite is the Tanner Tee. I am not affiliated with the company in any way. I just love the product. There are cheaper options but you usually get what you pay for. If you are serious about hitting and working on your swing, get yourself a solid tee. It might cost you some money up front but you will come out ahead in the long run.
Why is a batting tee such a valuable tool?
- You are in complete control. You decide where the ball is placed and when to swing.
- You can isolate parts of your swing and work on specifics.
- You don’t need anyone else to get some tee work in.
