The drop of the bat is the difference between the length minus the weight. For example, if a bat is 33" long and it weighs 30 ounces, then the drop is -3. The drop of the bat varies in baseball, depending on the level of play. Little League doesn't have any regulations for the drop zone. Senior League baseball (ages 10 - 14) has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -8. High school baseball has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -3. College baseball has a drop zone regulation of no lighter than -3.
I think you mean baseball bat. In the younger leagues you can get a bat that is a drop 10. In the older leagues, it is usually a drop 3.
The length of the bat minus the weight of the bat. (Length - Weight = Drop #)
a drop 3 is when the wight of the bat doesn't drop under 3 oz less than length. example30 in length 27 oz...31 length 28 oz and so on
Well I have been playing baseball for 10 years.and last nighr 5/30/12 I hit a triple with a drop 3 but a drop 12 is good aswell but drop 3 is best
There is no legal requirement, although the strength of a player of that age could handle a drop 5 bat. Its not until the high school level that players are required to use a drop 3 bat. So to get players use to a bat that size, a 7th grader or 8th grader should use a drop 5 baseball bat.
Drop = (weight of bat in oz) - (length of bat) Wood bats have a natural drop of -3, so: (-3) = (weight of bat in oz) - (34) 31 oz = weight of a 34 inch wood bat. In the MLB, that's the minimum weight of a bat. That's why corked bats are illegal, because they weigh less and give a more negative drop (which is an advantage).
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.
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
Legally useable is a drop 13Smallest ever is a drop 32
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.
