Best 2018 Drop 3 Bats

Weight drop is how some players describe a bat's size. It's the difference between the length of the bat (in inches) and the weight of the bat.

For most collegiate and high school approved baseball bats, the drop weight is almost always 3. As these are popular bats, JustBats.com reviews the five (5) best 2018 drop 3 bats.

Remember, drop 3 baseball bats are mostly BBCOR bats. BBCOR is the certification for bats used in college and high school baseball, though they are legal for play in Intermediate (50-70) and Junior League divisions of Little League. These are the best drop 3 bats based on player feedback and customer reviews.
