The weight of the bat, in ounces, is 3 less than the length of the bat in inches. The -3 is called the 'bat drop' or 'drop weight'. Measure the bat and then subtract 3 from the number of inches and you will determine the weight of the bat in ounces. If the length of the bat is 30 inches, the weight is 27 ounces. If the length of the bat is 33 inches, the weight is 30 ounces. If you see a bat with a -6 on it, that means the weight of the bat, in ounces, is 6 less than the length of the bat in inches ... a -8 means the weight, in ounces, is 8 less than the length of the bat in inches.
