Removing the ball flight from the equation puts the focus on evaluating just the hitter's mechanics.
    My point was that a positive result off of a tee does not equate to a positive result off of live pitching.

    A negative result off of a tee is generally indicative of an issue.

    By the way, I'm all for dry swings .

    I agree 100%. A tee can definitely tell you about negatives. The trap is the false positives, such as with your hitter.

    Knowledgeable guidance is important.
