If you are talking about the same length bat then yes a 9 drop is heavier than a 10 drop. The -9 and -10 is used to tell you the weight of the bat in relationship to the length. If you have a 32 inch bat and a -10 drop the bats weight is 22 oz. If that same length bat is a -9 drop it would be 23 oz. If you have a 31 inch bat and a -9 drop the bat it would be 22 oz.

Where did fastpitch softball start?

The problem is that fastpitch softball is a derivative of slowpitch softball. Slowpitch has a place; however, the entire reason for throwing underarm was to make it a more leisurely game.

There is really no reason for it to exist other than the sexism that has kept girls from playing baseball.
