There are a lot of fundamental concepts similar with hitting a baseball and hitting a golf ball. The most obvious and important one is keeping the head still and down at contact. Batting tee practice, like golf promotes that concept. Another important idea that I teach my baseball students mimics the pro golfer’s use of the practice range after rounds, as well as before. I encourage my students to practice on the batting tee after rough games, even if it is only a few swings. Practicing after games helps relieve frustration and fixes batting problems immediately, when the cause for concern is fresh in the players’ minds. Of course, this hitting the range practice is easier when players have a batting tee setup at home.
