Batter practices hitting the ball out in front of the body.

Drill Setup

  • Place two tees at the plate.
  • Tee 1 should be at batter’s belly button and approximately waist high.
  • Tee 2 should be out in front of tee 1 and slightly lower.

Two Tee Baseball Hitting Drill

How it Works

  1. Batter sets up at tee 1.
  2. He swings over tee 1, which does not have a ball on it, and hits the ball off tee 2.
  3. Batter freezes at end of follow-through.
  4. Then he resets and repeats the drill.

Coaching Tips

  • Batter should be swinging down and over tee 1 and then along the same plane as the ball on tee 2.
  • Batter should keep eyes on the ball on tee 2 during their entire swing.
