The -12 is the 'drop' of the bat and means the number of ounces the bat weighs is 12 less than the number of inches the bat is in length.

If you have a 32 inch bat, a -12 drop means the bat weighs 20 ounces.

If you have a 30 inch bat, a -12 drop means the bat weighs 18 ounces.

If you know the length of the bat in inches and the drop, you can figure out how many ounces the bat weighs.

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.
