Why Choose Safety T-Balls?

Organized tee ball leagues use safety tee balls for beginners (typically under 8) for a number of reasons. Unlike a regular baseball which has a hard core, a safety ball has a foam center which helps reduce risk of potential injury if a child is hit with a ball during play or practice. In addition, the dense foam makes learning to catch easier as a safety tee ball is less likely to sting the hands when kids catch the ball with their bare hands. Similarly, the lighter weight and softer surface means the ball will be slower when hit off a tee.

The History of Tanner Tees

In the early 1990s Joe Tanner invented a hand rolled, flexible rubber tee top and an adjustable metal stem. He was coaching a professional organization by day and built tees in his garage at night. Over time, Joe's batting tee evolved into a small business which became Tanner Tees. Today, the company is still family owned and operated. Each pro style Tanner Tee (Original, Pro, Heavy & Infinitee) is assembled in the USA with domestic and imported parts, and every Flextop is hand rolled by our skilled team in Sarasota, FL.
