It's a mixed bag.. but yes mostly hitting the ground. If she has line drives, usually it's still falling within the infield. Now I will say she has hit a couple of line drives into the outfield, so there definitely is the ability to do it, it just doesn't happen as often as I would expect. The force of her swing is pretty strong honestly. For example, we use the Skilz F5 batting trainer, and even with all four bands attached, she get almost get it to full revolution. That isn't too bad imo.young kids always seem to roll wrists into contact,
and result is weak grounders.
Are you saying she can't get it out of the IF becasue all hits are on the ground?
or is she actually barreling up line drives, but with just weak results?
My dd has about the same stats as yours- 9yo, 4'5 and 54lbs-skinny as a rail. She sometimes drives the ball to the outfield and sometimes hits weak pop ups, I would say your dd's issues are related to her swing and/or a not so hot bat. Point being I wouldn't focus on her strength too much, good mechanics and a hot bat definitely are bigger issues imho. Wouldn't focus on the bat first either, post some video on here and you will get plenty of good advice on what needs work.A 29 inch Louisville Slugger composite. It's very light. Also has an Axe bat which she rarely uses.. 28 inches and just as light.
In my amateur opinion, looks like she's already pretty fully extended at contact. Might be where the tee is placed. I think it's a good swing overall, but if she hits that ball in the frame before (letting the ball get to the plate) probably gets more behind it.
