'Drop' is a term used with bats and is the difference in the weight and length of a bat. Subtract the length (in inches) from the weight (in ounces) to determine the drop. A bat that is 30 inches long and weighs 35 ounces would have a drop of 5. A bat that is 35 inches long and weighs 30 ounces would have a drop of -5. Most bats have a negative drop.
