Gifts for Baseball Players: Our Most Popular Batting Tees

An essential training tool for every hitter is a quality batting tee. Here are our best-selling batting tees that make great gifts for baseball players, softball players, and coaches!

Tanner Tee the Original - This is our original patented batting tee, the one that changed baseball forever and is still our most popular batting tee.  It's available in lowball, youth, or adult height.

Tanner Heavy Batting Tee -  It has a reinforced steel stem and our heaviest base for unbeatable stability on any surface... grass, a raised home plate... anywhere. The Tanner Heavy is a favorite of pros, baseball facility owners, instructors... and Moms and Dads who like their equipment to last a long time with heavy use.

Tanner Pro Batting Tee - The Tanner Pro is our "Goldilocks" batting tee.  It's the perfect blend of stability from a weighted base, while still light enough to be easily portable, and a reinforced steel stem. The solid steel base is wrapped in rubber and has a built-in carrying handle.  

💡 Gift Idea - Adding a custom wrap to your batting tee is a fun way for your player to show their personality when choosing gifts for baseball players, softball players or coaches. Order early to allow time to have your new batting tee custom wrapped in time for the holidays. Choose choose between camo or carbon and add it the Tanner Pro, Tanner Heavy or Tanner Tee - the Original.

Tanner Jr Youth Batting Tee

Is your player just starting their baseball journey? Tanner Jr. has only been around a short time, and already it's making HUGE waves in baseball.  We were told again and again by frustrated parents that there were just no quality, durable tees available for young baseball players.  At Tanner Tees, we knew we had to get involved and answer the call.  So with our never-ending commitment to exceptional quality, we designed the Tanner Jr batting tee ---- for ages 3 to 8 years.

About the Author

Joe H. Tanner Baseball Products was founded by retired coach Joe Tanner after nearly fifty years in baseball. Joe realized a need in the game and solved it with the first Tanner Tee prototype. It was lightweight, portable, and easy to work the inside and outside part of the plate. It disassembled with ease and could be transported from the cage to the ball field in nearly any personal equipment bag. His tee was adjustable and held its height based on friction mechanics. Joe earned three patents for his Tanner Tee.
