What does -3 mean on a baseball bat?

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.

When was a 6 bat signed by mickey mantle have been made?

The information that you have provided is not enough to date the bat. The 6 on the knob is an inch mark, a term used with baseball bats referring to the number stamped into the knob of the bat indicating the length on store model bats. the number 6 would indicate that the bat is 36 inches. Model number is not an inch mark. The signature on the barrel is most likely a facsimile signature as the bat is endorsed by Mickey Manlte. Even if the 6 appears in the center label, more information would be needed. Hillerich & Bradsby Co. Louisville Slugger has used different oval center brands in their history. By identifying the center label, trade marks, and patens you can narrow down the year to what era the bat was made. Visit the Louisville Slugger Bat Dating guide link located below. (Related Links) You can match the markings on your bat with the easy to use bat dating chart to get an approximate date for your Louisville Slugger bat. I will also leave a link below for an Adirondack Bat Sating Guide.
