History of Tanner Tees
The Tanner Tee was first built as a batting tee for professional baseball back in the early 1990s. Former player and coach, Joe H. Tanner developed a hand rolled, flexible rubber tee top and an adjustable metal stem. In the early days Joe was coaching for a professional organization by day and after work he built tees in his garage while his wife sold them by phone in their kitchen.
Those humble beginnings evolved into the industry standard hitting tee. Joe’s batting tee invention created a new product category in Baseball Training Aids, which is known today as the Pro Style Batting Tee. Joe has personally built and sold over 200,000 batting tees since officially becoming a business in 1995. Today, this family run business continues in Joe’s mission to maintain the gold standard in batting tees. The 2016 Tanner Tee has received upgrades to every section of the tee, making it the most durable and functional batting tee we’ve built to date.
Still made in the USA and handcrafted by a skilled team, Tanner Tees proudly employs more people solely focused on a batting tee than other company. The company is veteran owned, and Joe Tanner still works three to four days per week rolling FlexTops by hand.

Hand-rolled rubber FlexTop allows you to feel the ball not the tee at contact for the most realistic hitting experience during tee work.
Patented friction technology provides smooth simple height adjustments.
Bases are rounded for safe play and safe travel in your game day bag.
Baseball/Softball rests high on the FlexTop so hitters contact the correct portion of the ball to produce line drives, without ever feeling the tee.
Our Patented Flextop
The hand-rolled FlexTop sets Tanner Tees apart from any other training tool. The rubber we shape each FlexTop from combines with a specific assembly process that provides a longer lasting top than other tees. Flexible yet strong rubber allows the bat to pass through the contact point with the least interference (and without harming your bat) providing instant feedback with every hit. With the baseball or softball resting high on the FlexTop, hitters will focus on contacting the correct part of the ball to produce line drives, while never feeling the tee. We've been hand rolling the FlexTop with our signature flap for over 20 years. From your first repetition off of a Tanner Tee, you’ll realize the training benefit and durability our FlexTop offers.
Why it's a Great Tee
The batting tee is the most important training aid for a hitter’s development. The combination of Durability, Portability, Hitting Experience and Price makes Tanner Tees the number one choice for professional organizations, hitting facilities, collegiate programs, high school teams, recreational leagues, and the home hitter. It’s a versatile tee that will work for you.
For 25 years, we've been family owned and operated. We proudly stand behind our tee with excellent customer service and in-depth knowledge and understanding of our industry. Call us anytime for assistance. We listen to players, coaches and hitting instructors to help improve our tee and retain our reputation as the number one pro-style batting tee in the world.
Finally, the Tanner Tee is the only pro-style tee to offer a replacement FlexTop. This allows the user to replace the top section of the tee if necessary and eliminates the need to purchase an entire new batting tee. The FlexTop replacement installs in seconds and fits all Tanner Tees. This is not an offer shared by other tee options.

You may look at the base of the tee and say "that's a pretty small base." But, that's also a great part of the design of this tee. If the player is constantly knocking the tee over, then they're not squaring up to the ball correctly - another instant feedback feature of this tee. If the player is hitting correctly, the tee by itself will stay upright. One reviewer mentions using a barbell weight to help keep the tee upright. It's a good suggestion if you're practicing with kids who are just starting to learn how to hit the baseball, or early spring when your team is rusty. But, once they start "getting it," I'd suggest not using the weight to gain the feedback on squarely hit balls.
The other great feature of this tee is the shaft. The fiberglass top shaft has some flexibility, and the steel tube lower adjustable shaft will last a long time. There's a lot of up/down adjustment, so the player can practice hitting at the knees to those higher shoulder pitches.
Finally, the rubberized base is thick, made to last a long time.
We have one of these tees now, and I'll be picking up two more for practice hitting stations for team use.
What prevents a five - star rating is durability of the elastic/plastic used to attach the flexible ball rest to the tee shaft. This piece split shortly after our warranty expired, we call the company and were told we could purchase a replacement piece. This is fine, I understand and accept their warranty policy, but do believe this is a correctable design flaw. During softball tournaments and hitting coach practices I see these tees wrapped with electrical or duct tape.
Overall, this is a good but not great product given aforementioned issue. This product was far superior to the plastic/rubber tee's available at the time we purchased and allows for drills not possible with plastic/rubber tees. Now, it appears, the market has caught up with Tanner given the new product options available from Jugs, Atec, Rawlings, and Franklin. Of those, Jugs and Atec appear to be on par with Tanner and worth consideration.
We purchased a 10 pound plated weight for the tee from a local sporting goods store for less than $10. We did not use the weight for long as our swing drills corrected the root cause of the tip.
Already being familiar with the product, and having an account on Amazon, made it very easy one night for me to decide to order one using my Kindle Fire. I was pleased to see the Tanner Tee offered at an affordable price. I had never studied how they were put together so when it arrived I was very pleased to see how simple it was to build. Two simple steps and the tee was ready and off we wrent to hit! The quality is so much higher with better, more durable, materials. The adjustment mechanisms for changing height is smooth and flawless. Don't waste the same amount of money working through multiple cheap tees from the sporting good store. Invest in a Tanner Tee once and from what I have seen, get may years of use!
