The Brush Top Tee makes batting tee work feel like hitting a ball suspended in air. The brush allows the bat to hit cleanly through the ball at contact. Unlike traditional batting tees, the Brush Top Tee is not connected to a home plate. The movable base allows for quick positioning of the tee inside, outside, or off the plate to properly represent various pitch locations and correct ball contact points. This mobility allows hitters to set up on the plate, similar to a game situation, and position the ball to realistically represent various pitch locations. The Brush Top Tee can accommodate both baseballs and softballs. It's a great training tool for slap hitters or teaching hitters to hit through the bottom half of the ball for maximum backspin. The durable brush will last up to 10 times longer than traditional rubber type tees. The brush holder and stem are made of tough polyurethane tubing that will withstand the most intense batting practice sessions.
