Glove Care Tips
Baseball gloves are organic, expensive, and will deteriorate over time. So why do I see so many players throwing them in the dungeon of their equipment bags just to be filled with dirt, sunflower seeds, and smashed by helmets. How do you expect to keep the shape of the glove game day ready? Carry your glove, that’s right carry it by hand. You want your glove to catch and perform than you must treat it right, release it. Another issue is the forming of the glove. Stop folding the fingers of the glove towards you. The glove should act as a ramp for baseballs not as a barricade. Bend the fingers away from you which will open up your glove and invite the baseball in. Lastly don’t oil your glove to break it in just let it break in naturally. My best friend for glove maintenance was Fiebing’s Saddle Soap.
