In 1999, innovation came to a young father. Todd Newman was coaching 3 sons in baseball, and was tired of the same tee always breaking down soon after purchasing it. Todd thought there was a better way. Starting in his garage the first prototype was made. After thousands of swings and hundreds of modifications. The “XTee” was created. The XTee became the most versatile, durable and portable hitting tee on the market. Pro XTee is used by baseball and softball players of all ages from Tee-Ball to collegiate and professional players and coaches. and was named the American Baseball Coaches Association’s “Product of the Year”.
