Bat length for a 4 foot 10 inch child?

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.
