 Slide (baseball) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, a slide is when a player, acting as a baserunner, drops their body to the ground once they are very close to a base they are approaching.
Sliding addresses this problem by providing, through the body's friction with the ground, the most rapid means of slowing a baserunner's momentum.
Whether a particular instance of a take-out slide is legal within the rules of baseball is a judgment call made by the umpire, usually based upon how close the baserunner comes to the base they are approaching during the slide.

 Sliding by Coach Tom O'Connell
In starting these drills, it is assumed that no one has had formal instruction in sliding, that the players are poor sliders, amateur sliders and even "afraid" to slide.
Buttocks and calf of bent leg should show the wear of absorbing the force of the slide; otherwise, the person is landing incorrectly.
Remember, the left foot hooks the bag sliding to the right, and the right foot hooks the base sliding to the left.

 Slide, Kelly, Slide on Baseball Almanac

 "hip slide" - Baseball Fever
I would say the best explanation of the swing that gives the best meaning to "hip slide" and why it is a flaw and how to fix it is from Yeager's cd's which have a lot of emphasis on the weight shift and lower body perpsective on the swing.
A common flaw in the high level pattern is that back leg push is still underway when the front leg blocks which is very inefficient.
Hip slide is a good way to describe this problem.
