TATER-TS143 (Short Bat Trainer)

The TS143 is a short bat ideal for two-handed drills, tee work, soft toss, and even live pitching. This trainer is a great complement to any hitter's tool set to improve their game. Featuring a club-like feel, this bat closely resembles the feelings of a standard bat game, but shortened. The TS143 closely resembles our ML19 trainer with the only significant difference being the knob style, the TS143 has a traditional knob for hitters who prefer to feel the knob on their bottom hand. 

The TS143's features make it perfect for players who need to improve on staying inside the baseball and their bat path. Because of its significant weight, which is typically even with the length of the bat (26" 26 oz., 28" 28 oz.) this is a great trainer for players looking to increase bat speed and awareness of the proper swing mechanics to have a powerful and compact swing. 

This tool is specifically used for inside hitting drills. More experienced players use this trainer to effectively drive their bottom hand through the zone while younger players use it to learn barrel control.
