This is the UTILITEE, a batting tee training revolution. For the first time ever, you are able to get four tees in one! Each UTILITEE comes with a universal tripod base and a "no feel" ball holder. On its own, it's a very durable and portable batting tee. However, this tee is very smartly designed with optional attachments to correct common hitting flaws and create proper muscle memory. The 3 tee attachments simply 'snap' into place on top of the upper shaft. With minimal effort, you are able to switch out any attachment to practice all aspects of your swing.
No more spending additional money buying two, three or even four tees to meet your hitting needs! The UTILITEE also allows you to simply collapse the tripod legs and take it with you anywhere, anytime. This tee teaches multiple fundamental hitting skills that provide correct feedback with every swing. The hitter is able to correct their mistakes before they become habit.

The Cast-Away attachment teaches you to "keep your hands tight" through the hitting zone to produce the "snap" needed for a powerful swing. The immediate feedback provided by the casting pole encourages you to maintain correct hand and bat position through contact with the ball. By doing so, you create a short and compact bat path, preventing you from "casting" your hands out producing the undesired "long swing".
The Perfect Cut attachment forces you to attack the top half of the ball by eliminating any "uppercut" in your swing. Practicing to strike the upper half of the ball creates the downward swing path necessary to generate backspin which results in driving the ball from gap to gap. The Perfect Cut builds your muscle memory to prevent such common hitting mistakes as a collapsing backside, dipping shoulders, and 'flying open'.
The In and Out attachment stresses the importance of your bat path and batting stance to properly attack the ball on both the inside and outside part of the plate. This attachment allows you to visualize where the point of contact is when hitting the inside pitch (out in front of the plate) as well as the outside pitch (let the ball get 'deep'). With the In & Out, you will learn how to properly drive the ball to all fields.
Over the years as a college coach, I have bought many different hitting tees. The UtiliTee has proven to be the most versatile product I have ever used. It teaches our players the fundamentals of hitting with instant feedback on every swing. - Adam Smith, Head Baseball Coach at Concordia of Chicago
As far as hitting tools, I feel I have used pretty much everything out on the market. I always have to buy new tees every year. We have been using the UtiliTee for some time now and have to say it has held up to the wear and tear of our college guys but also has handled the camps we have with no problem. I highly recommend the UtiliTee for someone who is looking for a durable tee that teaches kids the fundamentals of hitting. - Augie Schmidt - Head Baseball Coach at Carthage College / Golden Spikes Winner
The UtiliTee is amazing! I like it as a teaching tool because of the different developmental attachments. This is a great hitting tool for every range of coaching and player abilities. I highly recommend it for all hitters! - Jarvis Brown, Minnesota Twins World Series Winner
I have been giving private hitting lessons for the past seven years. During this time, I have had to replace my tees every year. Putting a weight on the base of the tee gives the base some much needed stability, but its finally time to put the weights back into the weight room. With my time with the UtiliTee, there has not been one time I have been worried about its stability or durability. I recommend anyone that's serious about hitting to get one. - Joe Ferro - Head Coach18U Lakeside Legends / Personal Hitting Coach
As a coach, sometimes I am the only one working with 12-15 girls at a time. The UtiliTee allows me to group our hitters based on a specific skill set that they need to work on. The instant feedback with each attachment is a great way to show my hitters when they are not taking a proper swing without me having to watch each and every swing they take. They now have a great tool that will help them get better each and every time they use it. We have now bought multiple tees for our teams, and I must say, with the collapsing tripod base, its a breeze to take them with us in our travel bags wherever we go. We now have another hitting coach with the UtiliTee as it and really helps our girls build confidence in themselves by developing the proper muscle memory in every swing. With each swing they take, they have something specific to work on which not only presents a challenge to the girls, but also makes practice fun again. If you are in fast pitch softball, the UtiliTee is a must! - Jose Vazquez - High School / Travel Softball Coach
