Batting tees, also called hitting tees, are an essential piece of softball hitting instruction. There are several drills on the hitting drills pages that show the utilization of the tee. The purpose is to help the athlete correct her swing in a controlled environment and, through repetition, perfect her swing for the game. Generally speaking, hitting tees come in two varieties as a single tee or double tee. The purpose of the double tee is to focus on the precision of the swing by requiring the athlete to hit one ball while averting the other all in a smooth single motion. Hitting tees are generally used in conjunction with the pop-up batting nets.
I have come across a very different kind of hitting tee, the PopToss Batting Tee, that seeks to simulate the soft toss action by flipping the ball in the air for the batter. In this way, it provides the coach the ability to hone in on the batter's mechanics. It is also a great way for a player top practice on her own. Interestingly, it costs about the same as a static hitting tee shown below. So, if you are looking for another "hand", the PopToss Tee may be what you are looking for.
