That is called the 'drop'. Subtract the length of the bat in inches from the weight of the bat in ounces and you get the drop, or minus number. EXAMPLE: A 34 inch long bat weighs 30 ounces. 30-34=-4. -4 is the drop of the bat.

No they cannot be used in different leagues since softball bats have the larger length-weight differential (maximum in Major League Baseball is -3) and the barrel is too large (standard barrel is 2 3/4 ")AnswerBaseball bat barrels are usually fatter in diameter, heavier and have adifferent COR value (this determines the speed the ball rebounds off the bat) the balls rebound is slower for a softball bat.

However, the weight of the bat will also come into play when it comes to one that the child will be comfortable using. Bats come designated with a 'drop' ... this is the length of the bat, in inches, subtracted from the weight of the bat, in ounces. All youth bats are a minus 'drop', for example, a 30 inch long bat that weighs 25 ounces is a 'drop' of -5. Generally, the younger the player the higher the minus drop should be when it comes to the child being comfortable swinging the bat.
