Best Answer

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.
