How to break in a baseball glove.

Breaking in your glove is by far one of the hardest services to do to your glove and there are many different ways to do this. This process is what we do at We use the product Glove Honey by Glovesmith and have found that it has provided the best results. Coat the entire glove without over saturating the leather. Once the glove is oiled, placed the glove in a zip-lock bag and seal. Then place the bag (with your glove in it) on the dashboard of your car, during the day in the heat. Leave it in there for about an hour and then remove. Once you remove the glove you want to play catch right away (the glove will be hot) but your glove will also feel very broken in. The glove will stiffen back up again, but if you do this process for 1-2 weeks your glove will be game ready. You can view a video of this service here: How to Break in a Baseball Glove.
