Lee Kicklighter is an unapologetic advocate of top-hand drills.
“We practice a lot of top-hand drills,” the softball coach at Union Grove (Georgia) High School said. “In my opinion top hand is very critical to hitting.”
Kicklighter is in his fifth season at the helm and has been coaching the sport for 13 years. He has guided Union Grove to fourth and fifth place finishes in the state, respectively, during his tenure. And he credits a part of the team’s triumphs to their emphasis on top-hand drills in practice.
