How to Choose the Right Batting Tee for Your Child
- With tees for every age and skill level, you may not know the right batting tee for your young softball or baseball player(s).
- The tightly wound rubber cone rests the ball high on the tee providing the hitter a huge target area on the baseball to attack.
- The rolled rubber Tanner Flextop allows the bat to move through the tee without any resistance to the hitter when he or she swings.
- With one foot on the base and one hand on the stem, our patented friction system allows a six-year-old to adjust the Tanner Tee to his desired ball height without help from mom, dad, or coach making the Tanner Tee's quality and ease of use the right batting tee for batting practice.
- While we recommend parental supervision during any tee training or hitting practice especially for tee-ball age hitters, even the youngest ones can operate Tanner Tee independently.
As a parent and possible "first-time coach," it is often difficult to determine what tools, drills, and equipment will be best for your young baseball or softball player. With tees for every age and skill level of player, we invite you to discover a day at the ball field with a tee baller and coach pitch hitter, ages six and nine for batting practice to help you find the right batting tee for your baseball player.
Our recommended tee-ball tee is durable enough for those miss-hits, portable, and offers an adjustment range that covers everyone on the team.
The Tanner Youth Batting Tees are Different. Is it Durable and Will it Hold a Baseball and Softball?
The tightly wound rubber cone rests the ball high on the tee providing the hitter a huge target area on the baseball to attack. This means the tee does not interfere with the swing path.
The rolled rubber Tanner Flextop allows the bat to move through the youth batting tee without any resistance to the hitter. This builds confidence in young hitters to swing hard and through the baseball without fearing opposition from a rigid tee structure. Each Tanner Tee is made for baseball or softball.
How Does the Tee Arrive and Assemble?
There is no additional assembly required to use Tanner Tees. A threading system locks your tee stem securely into the base. Just turn right to tight and left to loosen, simple installation for every age.
Can the Tee Adjust to Cover High and Low Pitches?
With one foot on the base and one hand on the adjustable stem, our patented friction system allows a six year old to adjust the Tanner Tee to his desired ball height without help from mom, dad or coach.

Can My Tee Baller Use This Tee Without Me Having to Operate it for Him/Her?
The benefit of our lightweight, metal construction is durability and mobility. Every hitter on the team can carry, set up and adjust this tee. While we recommend parental supervision during any tee training especially for tee-ball age hitters, even the youngest ones can adjust their Tanner Tee on their own.
Young hitters can train with a friend, coach, parent, or alone. Tanner Tees provide a stable ball rest and simple operation.
Space is Limited in Our Vehicle, How Does the Tanner Tee Disassemble and Travel?
Traveling between home and the ballpark is hassle-free with Tanner Tee. With team gear, personal bags, and everyday items in your vehicle - space is limited. Consider a tee that disassembles into two manageable sections or rides upright in style to transport easily.
Does the Tanner Tee Come with a Travel Bag?
We do not currently offer a unique batting tee bag. In our experience, the baseball equipment bag is something you will need to purchase based on the specific equipment you need to carry. Tanner Tees, however, are not bulky. When broken down into two pieces, they can easily fit in most gear bags along side your glove, bat, and batting helmet.
