Fisher-Price & ESPN Better Batter Baseball

By Andrew Liszewski

So it turns out, according to Fisher-Price’s marketing team at least, that learning to play baseball with a tee isn’t the best way since kids tend to keep their eye on the tee instead of the ball. But what’s a parent with dreams of their children eventually making the big leagues to do?! Well thankfully Fisher-Price has come to the rescue with the ESPN Better Batter Baseball setup. Instead of a tee, the ball dangles from a flexible arm making it easier for kids to keep their eyes on the prize when swinging, and loading the next ball is all done automagically when you step on a button on the plate. $50 from Fisher-Price.

For your older players, you can shop bats to find the right fit for your future pro player.

    That is so fun to say. I'd like more information on this, but fisher price's website is down. That field the kid is playing in doesn't look quite right, maybe that's why no one else is playing with him.

    The price is pretty impressive, seeing as it is new. I always hated hitting the ball off the tees. I hated how they fell and I hated hitting them. If I had a kid interested in baseball, I'd get them this (I might just get one for me to fix the wrong in my childhood).
