It's up to you. You can buy a cheap batting tee or you can pick up the one that more high schools, colleges, pro teams and leagues use than any other - Eli's Springback Batting Tee. Eli Robinson, the owner, built this tee because no other batting tee on the market was good enough. Not only does Eli own and teach at one of the best baseball schools in the country, he is a pro scout for the Texas Rangers, so he definitely knows baseball!Eli's Springback Batting Tee Features:
After spending 9 years playing minor league ball, Eli left his first dream behind and instead of taking one of the many coaching jobs he was offered, he decided to open his own baseball and softball school because teaching young players was important to him. A batting tee is crucial to hitting training and, after trying every tee on the market, Eli wasn't satisfied. He wanted one that would hold up to the rigors of multiple player practices, one that was adjustable for different pitch heights and players and a batting tee that didn't fall over when it was accidentally hit by a bat.
Whether you play baseball or softball, Eli's Springback Tee will work for you. Adjustable from 26 inches to 42 inches high, the telescoping stem can be changed for different heights easily, with no tools required. This makes it great for anyone 5 years old through adult and allows for hitters to work on hitting pitches at various different pitch heights. Due to the 10 pound weighted base and the spring at the bottom of the stem, mishits cause the tee to simply spring back instead of falling over like other hitting tees. No more wasting time bending over and picking the whole batting tee up, the springback tee is ready to go, hit after hit. According to Eli, you simply cannot knock this tee over!
If you are training a toddler or first year ball player, by all means, consider purchasing a cheap, plastic batting tee. If you don't know for sure that your child will be playing ball next year, that's the only sensible thing to do.
If you want a real batting tee that can handle serious practice by multiple players, there really is only one choice. High schools and colleges are buying Eli's Batting Tee by the dozen for one reason only - it works and it lasts! 100% Made in the U.S.A., every single part of Eli's Springback Tee is covered by a One Year Warranty - the telescoping extension pole, the base, the spring and even the rubber ball holder. Even if something eventually breaks after the warranty period, each component of the tee is replaceable without having to buy a whole new tee.
The standard springback tee comes with a black base and black stem. Several other stem colors are available for an additional $10 if you would like to match your tee to your team's colors.
