Best Answer

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)

Does the -9 mean the bat is heavier than a -10 fastpitch softball bat?

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.

10 seconds from the time the pitcher has the ball in the circle. This rule is seldom ever enforced. The only way you will ever get this call is for the pitcher to get on the rubber and ready to pitch which will show a delay by the batter.
