Yeah she does have bat drag. It is when the elbow out races the hands. Baseball rebellion has a hitting aid name bat drag buster. It works.

She drops her elbow (slots) too early and her elbow gets stuck to her rib cage. With my DD we use a heavy bat and take 50 percent swings to extension focussing on keeping hands ahead of the elbow. She needs to fix this now.

It has been called slot and shift, elbow lowers as the hitter shifts forward.

I can see the barrel dip through the zone.

Seems the hands load back first and the backside collapses then the shoulders get flipped early, dropping the hands and barrel early. As RH said do the feet together drill. I would also do it off high tee too. With some posture.

I would address the hand placement at set up as well. She’s puts them in a position to get stuck. Maybe try near the rear shoulder above or below or right at the same height. They shouldn’t load first.

It's a tough one. My older DD drops her hands and either hits a pop up (if slow pitcher) or swings under the ball (if a faster pitcher).
