It doesn't "affect" the bat. Drop is the difference of the length and the weight.
-9 means the difference between the weight and the length of the bat (the length of the bat minus the weight of the bat). Most bats on average are -10
The drop is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight of the bat. If you have a 32 inch bat and its weight is 22oz you have a -10 drop.
-8 Means that it's a drop 8 bat, and that is just the difference between your length and weight of your bat.
You may be wondering what the difference is among a slowpitch softball bat, a fastpitch softball bat and a regular baseball bat. The difference is in the technology of designing the bat. The length, weight and barrel diameter, among other features, are the main differences. Manufacturers have determined the size and weight that are optimal for hitting a slowpitch softball versus fastpitch, and have designed them accordingly.softballpickles .com
You would need a softball bat in combat if there is no other weapon available. A softball bat is useful in combat because of the length of the bat and the hardness of the bat.
I guess they are more heavier than softball bats
A softball bat has a fatter barrel tot he bat, as well as a larger length-weight differential. Also, the length of the barrel is longer on a softball bat, as it starts lower on the bat. No they cannot be used in different leagues since softball bats have the larger length-weight differential (maximum in Major League Baseball is -3) and the barrel is too large (standard barrel is 2 3/4 ")AnswerBaseball bat barrels are usually fatter in diameter, heavier and have adifferent COR value (this determines the speed the ball rebounds off the bat) the balls rebound is slower for a softball bat.
The difference is a baseball bat has a bigger barrel and its weight is different. The softball bat has a smaller barrel and can be lighter than a baseball bat with the same length. Baseball bats are also usually wooden while softball uses aluminum.
That is referred to as the drop. It is the difference between the bat length and the weight. If the bat is 32 inches long and the drop is -10 the weight is 22oz. If bat is 32 inches and the drop is -12 then the weight is 20oz.
Kind of . Not necessarily . That number is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight . the larger the number, the faster the bat may be swung. I prefer to use a -11 personally . It's great bat speed.
The softball bat and the baseball bat weigh diffrent. The adult slow pitch for a softball bat is from 26oz to 30oz while a adults baseball is from 28oz to 31oz. And the length range is diffrent to the softball one is from 33" to 34" the baseball one is 31" to 34".
yes there is a difference because a major league baseball bat is wood and a girls are metal. also i minor leagues girls say softball and boys say baseball. once my friend was using a baseball bat and was hitting better. in softball you can not use a baseball bat! ---- never use a baseball bat in softball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In baseball, the ball is smaller and harder. You use a smaller sized bat than you do in softball. In softball, the ball is softer and bigger. The bat you use is bigger than the type of bat you use in baseball.
Softball bats have a bigger barrel this is because the ball is bigger
It is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight, ie 33 in length and 23 oz weight, is a drop 10, or -10, 33 in length and 24 oz weight is a drop 9, or -9, etc.
When selecting a softball bat a few things need to be considered; age, height, and weight of the person who will be using the bat, type of material the bat is made from, the grip, the drop; length-to-weight ratio, and if a youth bat or adult bat is needed. Easton has many choices in beginner's softball bats including youth and adult bats.
Softball bats are designed to hit softballs. Hitting a baseball with a softball bat may damage the bat. Either hit a softball or get a baseball bat if you do not want to risk damaging your bat.
This is a tough question to answer. A softball bat is a very personal thing. It depends on how old you are, how tall you are, and how strong you are. Let me start by stating that the right softball bat is one you can swing! In fastpitch softball it is all about bat speed. The heaviest bat you can swing at FULL speed is the right bat. There are two measurements for a bat. 1) Length, 2)Weight. Weight can be anywhere from 18oz to 24oz. Length may be from 24" to 34". A 5-7 year old may use a 24" bat. While an 18 year old may use an 34" bat. There is one more measurement that you will see. The Weight-Length value. For example, a 20" bat that weights 30oz is a -10. Bats that are -10, -11, and -12 are very popular.
Stealths are a high end softball bat. There are many version of the Stealth. They are expensive bats so when looking to buy one make sure you get one that is the right length and weight for you.
drop means how many ounces it is lighter than the length of the bat for example a drop -10 on a 32" bat would be 22 ounces
A baseball bat is made of harder wood than softball bats which are also made of wood but is softer. The reason is because baseballs are harder than softballs so they need strong wood.
You can buy softball bats at all different lengths. I use a 30 inch right now, but when I was younger I used 26 inch.
Yes, they can be rolled after being end loaded. When you roll a bat you are rolling the sweet spot not the entire length of the barrel.
