This is the Length to Weight Ratio ie: (Balance Point). Example: A 31L /21oz would be 31 inches long and 21 ounces in weight. The higher the negative number the lighter the bat is (for quicker bat speed).

What size cricket bat does a 12 year old need?

I'd say a 6 or 7. Not too heavy but not too light that it will break during your stroke. If you want to be totally sure the bat is right for you, stand up straight with your arms hanging down and if the bat reaches your wrist it is the right size also, If you can hold the bat horizontally above the ground with your weak arm and you dont shake it means that its the right one for you! Good luck

What is the value of a John Roseboro personal model Adirondack baseball bat?

John Roseboro store model Adirondack batI can't answer the question with accuracy at this time as when I give a value it is based on research of past auctions, and sales. When I get some info on the bat I will up date the answer. Unofficially (educated guess) I would say that a full size John Roseboro store model Adirondack bat is worth about $40.-$60. in excellent -near mint condition. Condition is important, and a bat in poor condition will have a far lower value as a bat in unused "minty" condition could sell for more.If you are having problems reading the name on the bat because it is worn from use this could be a sign that the bat is in a lower grade of condition. The size, and age of the bat is important as well. See Related Links below to assist you in dating the bat.Adirondack Professional model bats will typically have the model number on the knob followed by a Letter. For example Hank Aaron used a 63 A, Mickey Mantle used a 288 D. if your bat has the size stamped into the knob it is a store model bat. This is placed there to help the buyer identify the size of the bat. Examples of this would be number like; 6, 06 036, 36 all indications of a 36" bat. If you have a Professional model it will have a higher value.
