Now if you analyze a bunch of swings and we all have, you will see many different variations but in the vast majority of cases of elite swings the point at which your toe touches, your hands are the farthest back (even if this position is held for a while) and heel plants and hands begin going forward are all together within a couple frames of film. Now since all this happens very close together I don't usually get too bent out of shape if the results are there but when we see the hands going forward before toe touch I generally call that a leak and if your hands don't begin moving forward right after heel plant you are usually late a lot or begin your sequence too early to compensate and have an armsy swing because your hip need so badly to release regardless of your hands staying back.
Again I think for many players once they have good mechanics down this little mini sequence becomes both a timing and feel thing they work out for themselves but it still happens in a small window.
For Maddie I think she does a good job of holding and not leaking which is great. I just think her optimal swing will have her hands back more since I don't think her bat angle and separation are enough. As he stated though getting greater separation tends to lead her to a longer loopy swing because I'm guessing she feels the need to change her path which as I stated is probably not a good trade off to make
Again her swing is really good I think what Eric is looking for is help in spotting any small areas of improvement that can take her swing from really good to great. Did I mention already her swing is really good.
