Precision Impact Flex-Ball: Low Impact Safety Tee Balls for Kids Indoor Baseball or Outdoor Baseball (3-Pack)
SAFETY AND PLAYER CONFIDENCE: Training correctly and working hard is key to any beginner's development, but we believe that having FUN and being INJURY FREE is even more important. With Precision Impact's Flex-Balls, kids ages 4-7 can develop the ability to throw and catch baseballs with more confidence with less fear of injury.
REALISTIC FEEL: Besides the "flexibility" of the ball, every other aspect of the ball is nearly identical to a real baseball including weight, size, surface feel, and raised seams. They're great for playing Tee Ball also!
HOW FLEXIBLE ARE THE BALLS? By no means are Flex-Balls "soft"; a direct hit to the groin will no doubt send even the toughest down to their knees, but they do compress more than a standard baseball. They are similar in firmness to a toned, flexed muscle.
PREMIUM QUALITY & ODOR FREE: Precision Impact Flex-Balls are made of a rubber core with a polyurethane (PU) cover which is of much higher durability than typical PVC leather that most other manufacturers use. Further, our processes do not coat the leather with dangerous and awful smelling chemicals which exists on other brands. Keep your team and loved ones safe from dangerous and toxic materials.
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: Precision Impact Flex-Balls come with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Our customer service is dedicated to addressing any product/service issues and is committed to delivering a 5 star experience for all buyers. If you're not happy with our product, simply return it for a full refund. You really have nothing to lose!

Comfort grip handle makes it easy to use for coach
Can be used in multiple positions for numerous baseball drills
Scouts have long graded position players on five tools that are central to success in the game: hitting, hitting for power, running, fielding and throwing. The so-called “five-tool player” is a special breed, as those who truly rate above average in each category are extremely rare.
At 50 feet for 7-8-year olds, 60 feet for 9-10-year olds, and 60′ or 70′ for 11-12-year-olds depending on the league, this is a much shorter distance than the 90 foot distance that is standard for high school and up. Smaller fields favor the base runner.
You should not use your new bat in the batting cage. Batting cage balls are made of a more dense material than is used in a regulation baseball or softball and will cause denting. Bat failure due to use in a batting cage is very obvious and is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
Often hitters cannot get game like speeds from their coach's batting practice, so hitting at the local batting cages may be better than no batting practice. Additionally, for hitters who have fear of the ball, pitching machines that throw consistent strikes can help them gain confidence and get over their fears.
