Best Baseball Batting Tees – Top 5


Tanner Tees

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.

  1. Great buying guide for baseball tees! Thanks for sharing. I am a big believer in that you shouldn’t be spending a fortune here on a baseball tee. So many affordable options exist, so don’t let yourself get carried away. Tanner Tees look affordable and like they’ll get the job done.

  2. I appreciate the variety offered, that not all suggestions are coming from one brand so there’s no huge bias. Although we always want the best right? I’ve heard many great feedback on the Tanner tee, but maybe Franklin ones can still do the same job. What’s important is that our players can do their baseball batting tee drills.
