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).

It referrers to the drop of the bat or the weight. If you have a 32 inch long bat and a -11 drop the bat weight is 21 oz. If you have a 31 inch long bat and a -11 the bat weight is 20 oz.

It stands for drop 10. The drop of a bat depends on what the length and weight is. You find out the drop by subtracting the weight from the length. So if your bat was 32 inches long and 22 ounces then it would be drop 10 (-10) if your bat was 32 inches and 25 ounces then it would be drop 7 (-7)

Bat Length Minus The Drop = Bat Weight "The Drop" is a common term for describing the weight of an aluminum bat. It is unique to aluminum and composite bats as the weight of a wood bat varies somewhat within each bat. The drop simply means you take the length of the bat and subtract the drop to determine the weight. For Example: The DeMarini CF4 is a -10 and is available in 31", 32", 33" and 34". Therefore, a 31" would weigh 21 ounces, a 32" would weigh 22 ounces and so on.

The drop is the second most important thing in sizing a player with a new bat. First is the proper length. Once you determine that, the player should swing the heaviest bat she can get around quickly. That's not to say the heaviest bat, but the heaviest bat she can get good bat speed with. For most high school age girls with above average ability that's -10 or even -9. For high school players with average or below (less than a .300 batting average) as well as younger girls the drop should probably be about -11 or -12. As stated before, the first thing to find out is the proper length. To do that click the Bat Sizing Guide link http://www.aluminumbats.com/batsizingguide-thebattersbox.aspx What is the drop?

Most MLB bats weigh between 30-33 ounces. All are -3 drop, meaning if it is a 35 inch long bat, it must be 32 ounces.

the difference is that if you have a 30 inch bat the weight is 10 ounces less than the length on a -12 its 12 ounces less than the length. in high school and college aluminum bats have a -3 ratio.

Its however tall you are, the length of a bat doesnt matter its what fits you the best like if you were 5-6ft tall you would probably want a 31 inch or a 32 inch bat.

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.

Any 2 5/8 inch barrel as long as it has a drop of -8 or less. For example a 32 inch 24 ounce bat is fine, but not a 32/23. Also all 2 1/4 inch barrels are fine.

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

The -10 is the 'drop', or 'drop weight', of the bat. The drop is the length of the bat, in inches, subtracted from the weight of the bat in ounces. A -10 bat is a bat whose length, in inches, is 10 more than the weight in ounces. An example of a -10 bat is one whose length is 32 inches and whose weight is 22 ounces.
