It stands for drop 10. The drop of a bat depends on what the length and weight is. You find out the drop by subtracting the weight from the length. So if your bat was 32 inches long and 22 ounces then it would be drop 10 (-10) if your bat was 32 inches and 25 ounces then it would be drop 7 (-7)

That is referred to as the drop. It is the difference between the bat length and the weight. If the bat is 32 inches long and the drop is -10 the weight is 22oz. If bat is 32 inches and the drop is -12 then the weight is 20oz.

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.

the -10 means the distrubution of the weight between the end and the bottom of the bat. it is otherwise called a ten ounce drop which means the end is lighter than the power spot

-9 means the difference between the weight and the length of the bat (the length of the bat minus the weight of the bat). Most bats on average are -10

it is the number you subtract from the length to get the weight of the bat so a 29 inch bat would weight 19.5 onces
