One of my first questions to my hitting students is, “Do you have your batting tee setup at home.” The word setup is the key, because many have the tee, but that doesn’t mean it’s being used or ready for use. After the question, I inform them that they cannot be serious about improving their hitting without having a workable batting station at home. Trying to sleep on rough batting games is nearly impossible for serious ballplayers, so the batting tee is a must for pre and post game practice. Even ten baseball swings after or before heading to games can help ease the mind and give players hope for their next game – hope is a beautiful thing.
