The drop of the bat is the difference between the length minus the weight. For example, if a bat is 33" long and it weighs 30 ounces, then the drop is -3. The drop of the bat varies in baseball, depending on the level of play. Little League doesn't have any regulations for the drop zone. Senior League baseball (ages 10 - 14) has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -8. High school baseball has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -3. College baseball has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -3.

The -10 is the 'drop', or 'drop weight', of the bat. The drop is the length of the bat, in inches, subtracted from the weight of the bat in ounces. A -10 bat is a bat whose length, in inches, is 10 more than the weight in ounces. An example of a -10 bat is one whose length is 32 inches and whose weight is 22 ounces.

The drop is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight of the bat. If you have a 32 inch bat and its weight is 22oz you have a -10 drop.
