Rawlings Heart

what is the best way to break in a new baseball glove?

rawlings, heart of the hide, pro-i web

For years there have been different ways to break in gloves. I have heard them all....from people saying to put them in the oven to putting them in a sink and soaking the glove. (the funniest and worst one yet)

The best way I have seen without damaging the leather is to use either the oil you can buy at any sporting goods store or good old fashioned saddle soap which you can buy at any place that sells shoe polish.

Used correctly neither of these products will damage the glove or diminish the longevity of your mitt.

The nice thing about the Heart of the Hide series from Rawlings is they do use a good quality leather and the break in process has been started for you. I own a Pro Preffered glove from Rawlings and it has done very well for me.

I put a ball in the "sweet spot" of the pocket after I have massaged the product into the glove. Use a few sturdy rubber bands to hold the mitt at the"break in point" of where you would like it to fold. Sleep on it under your mattress and repeat the process until you feel the glove is comfortable.

I would suggest practicing with the glove daily to also assist in the speed of the process. This process should take no longer then a few days to a week depending on how much you use your glove, how stiff it was when you bought it and the quality of the leather.

Sometimes, old fashioned really does work best.

Good luck and I hope this helps. Give me a shout if you have any more questions.
