What Does "Drop" Mean?

What Does "Drop" Mean?


When talking about baseball bats or softball bats what does drop stand for? 

The "drop" is the number with the minus in front of it or the negative number listed on a bat. As shown below:

It is the length to weight ratio. By subtracting the drop from the length in inches of the bat, the weight in ounces of the bat is determined. The greater the drop is, the lighter the bat will weigh.

30 (bat length) - 5 (the drop) = 25 (bat weight)

For example, if you have a -5 length-to-weight ratio (or, drop) and a 30 inch bat, you subtract 5 from the 30 inches and that will give you the weight in ounces (25 ounces).
