Curtis Granderson and Kevin Long discuss benefits of the Tee

Chicago Cub star Kris Bryant has publicly stated that he takes about 75 swings a day off the batting tee. Justin Upton of the Los Angeles Angels uses the batting tee before every game to help him stay in the middle of the park. In this video Curtis Granderson discusses his personal disdain for the batting tee, but also acknowledges that even as a professional hitter, he never really grasped the benefits to using the batting tee. For some people, hitting off a tee into a bow net or in a cage doesn’t seem like a lot of fun. That might be true, but those are also people who don’t understand what it takes to hit a baseball. Placing a baseball in a specific contact point, and trying to repeat your swing to achieve a similar outcome every time takes time and a lot of work. Then, setting the batting tee up the next day and doing it all over again to try to become a little bit better at what you do.
