Bat Sizing Guide

Bats range from 26 to 32 inches for teball, minors and majors, and 30 to 34 inches long for our senior players. They will typically have a drop weight ranging from -8 to -14. The drop weight indicates the length to weight ratio. It is a simple concept, so don't let it confuse you; just taking the weight minus the length to come up with a negative number that is called the drop. For instance, a 34-inch bat that weighs 24 ounces is a -10 drop weight. See below some average drop weights.

  • Ages 8 & under: -12 to -14
  • Ages 8 to 14: -12 to -10
  • Ages 14 & up: -11 to -8


  •  Western Branch Little League will provide team jerseys that must be returned at the end of the season.
