Baseball Training: High Tee Drills

Video Transcript

Hi, guys. I'm Nick from here with more hitting tips and drills. Today I'm gonna be showing you the high tee drill. This is going to address a number of issues starting with either swinging with an uppercut or dropping your hands, as well as keeping your hands inside the ball. And also, solving your problems with having a weak top hand. So what you basically want to do is you're gonna want to set the tee up basically just above your bellybutton. That's gonna be –it's basically a little bit above the top of the strike zone. But it's gonna create a downward swing plane for you and help you keep your hands up, keep your hands inside. And it's really gonna help you fix those problem areas. This is a drill that you're gonna want to do pretty much any time you're doing tee work for anywhere from 25 to 50 swings. The first problem that high tee drill is gonna help alleviate is gonna be either dropping your hands or swinging with an uppercut. If you're trying to do a high tee drill and you have this issue, basically, you're gonna see yourself hitting a lot of balls into the top of the cage. You're not really gonna be able to hit the ball with backspin through the back of the cage, which is basically what we're trying to create through a flat swing path. The second problem that high tee drill is really gonna help you with is if you're having trouble with a weak top hand. This is usually an issue when you're seeing a lot of balls flare kind of to your opposite field side because you're not able to keep that strong hand position because the barrel is gonna be dropping a little bit. You also might see yourself hitting the tee a lot if your top hand is weak through the zone. The last major problem that high tee drill's gonna help you fix is gonna be if you're getting your hands out around the ball, not keeping your hands inside as you're going after the ball. So what this is gonna do, as you're doing high tee drill, you're gonna see yourself pounding a lot of balls into your pull side. Basically, as a right-handed hitter, you'd be hitting balls down hard to the third baseman or even to foul territory and as a left-handed hitter, towards the first baseman or into foul territory just because you're not gonna be able to hit that high pitch and hit the ball through the back of the case with an out and around swing path. That's it for the high tee drill. But if you guys have any questions on how to execute this drill or any other tips that you may need, feel free to contact us at or our Facebook or Twitter page. We'll be sure to get back to you quickly and help you out with any problems you may have. That's all I've got for you guys today, but be sure to check back in for more tips and drills. Thanks.
