#1 T Ball Set Essential: the T-Ball Tee

#1 T Ball Set Essential: the T-Ball Tee

As families explore activities they can do together, baseball and softball are excellent choices and many families begin that journey through tee ball or t-ball. Having a t ball batting tee as part of your t ball set is a great way to create opportunities for family fun at home, at the local field or the park. The Tanner JR. youth batting tee is ideal for your young hitter as they begin their t ball, baseball or softball journey.

Choosing quality t ball equipment is key to maintaining that fun as most families end up disappointed when low quality or plastic practice tees simply don’t hold up to their child’s energy and enthusiasm (or missed hits). So, they end up spending more to replace broken equipment over time. (Not to mention the lack of sustainability when it comes to "throw-away equipment.")

Tanner Jr. t ball tee solves that problem.

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.
