That is called the 'drop'. Subtract the length of the bat in inches from the weight of the bat in ounces and you get the drop, or minus number.

EXAMPLE: A 34 inch long bat weighs 30 ounces. 30-34=-4. -4 is the drop of the bat.

Almost always a minus number, it refers to the weight of the bat. Take the length of the bat and subtract the minus number and that is the weight. So a 33 inch bat that is -3 weighs 30 ounces.

minus 5 or drop 5 is how bats measure size to weight there are drop 12, drop 8, drop 5, and drop 3 this means that on a drop 5 bat there is 5 numbers in between the weight and lenght like 32 inches long and 27 ounches so there are five same goes for a drop 3 sept there are 3 numbers in between instead of 5

Hi, -12 or -anything is the length to weight ratio. So for example if your bat is 32 inches it will be 20oz

That means how many ounces it feels like when you swing it

It means that if you subtract 12 from the length of the bat, you will get the weight of the bat in ounces.
