The Backspin Tee

About Our Tee

The Backspin Tee is designed to change the way a hitter looks at the baseball. Practicing the proper location to strike the baseball is essential.

You want optimal backspin, for optimal distance. And our baseball tee is how you get it every time. Just keep your eye on the ball, and let our baseball hitting tee do the rest.

Developed by multiple Professional Coaches, the Backspin batting tee forces you to focus on the middle and bottom half of the baseball. The middle and bottom half of the baseball is the part professional pitchers don’t want you to hit, because hitting that part of the baseball means backspin, which equals distance, and distance creates champions!

Traditional hitting tees are designed to prop the baseball up forcing you to focus on the top of the baseball, while simultaneously obscuring the most important part of the baseball. That’s two reasons why professional pitchers love traditional batting tees, because hitting the top of the baseball forces the baseball down into the ground.

“Pro pitchers want to get batters out as soon as they can, and that is why majority of the pitch locations are designed to be at the lower half of the strike zone, where hitters have a harder time getting to the bottom half of the ball, which makes more ground balls”- Jarrett Gardner, Professional Pitching Coach.

All baseballs hit through and out of the infield are projected off the baseball bat at the middle or bottom half of the baseball creating backspin. The baseball will project into the air of the baseball bat at a higher angle, and depending on how hard you hit it will travel its furthest distance.

But you already knew that. You have always known that.

Remember when you played Tee-ball or practiced for little league, using a traditional batting tee, and occasionally you swung and hit the batting tee instead of the ball. Some would say you took your eye of the ball, and got sloppy, but I’m willing to bet you knew even at that age the most important part of the baseball was the bottom of the baseball.

But the shaft of that traditional hitting tee was always in the way. And every time you hit it too hard you had to pick it back up.

The Backspin Tee has no shaft under the baseball, which means the baseball is released off the baseball bat at contact without any tipping over of the batting tee. Even mishits above the baseball only rotate the batting tee which is easier managed than bending down to pick it up.

Saving time and frustration.

And of course the height of The Backspin Tee can be adjusted for desired location of practice within the hitting zone.

So let The Backspin Tee maximize your potential from home plate to homerun.

Now, keep your eye on the ball, and let our batting tee do the rest.

Professional Reviews

Love it. We talk so much about being on plane with proper launch angles. This is a great visual before having to swing in a live game.

Alan ZinterSan Diego Padres Hitting Coach

I’ve never seen anything like it. It seems more natural to hit this way.

Matt KempMLB All-Star & MVP

This is the first tee I have ever ran across that conditions my swing to stay in my legs, which is imperative for a hitter who wants to stay on the ball.

We were fortunate enough to use the backspin Tee during our championship season in the American Association.

This is exactly what pro hitters talk about doing while hitting. Hitting the right part of the ball to get more line drives.

Boots DayHitting Coach Evansville Otters 2014

It’s the best baseball batting tee I have ever seen. It just makes sense.

Fact: The true center of the ball is lower after being thrown. The ball is coming down with gravity. Pictured above is a 90 mph fastball for your comparison.

Note: The stationary middle of the ball (what most people think is the middle) will never lead to line drives over the infield. The bottom half of a stationary ball actually includes the actual middle of the ball.

On Path, Bottom Half.
