Tannet Tees with Softball and Baseball

Our Patented Flextop

Every Tanner Heavy Flextop is hand rolled in the USA. Our Flextop sets Tanner Tees apart from any other training tool. The rubber we shape each Flextop from combines with a specific assembly process that provides a longer lasting top than other tees. Flexible yet strong rubber allows the bat to pass through the contact point with the least interference (and without harming your bat) providing instant feedback with every hit. With the baseball or softball resting high on the Flextop, hitters will focus on contacting the correct part of the ball to produce line drives, while never feeling the tee. We've been hand rolling the Flextop with our signature flap for over 25 years. Founder Joe Tanner invented the rolled rubber top in his garage, and we're still a family owned operation. From your first repetition off of a Tanner Tee, you’ll realize the training benefit and durability our Flextop offers.

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) is assembled in the USA with domestic and imported parts, and every Flextop is hand rolled by our skilled team in Sarasota, FL.
