    I take it then that baseball gloves are quite rigid when new if they have to be broken in. It seems a lot of things to think about not only for breaking in the glove but which ones to buy to suit your style of game and needs?

    Once worn in or ‘broken in’ would they then be of no use to a different player? From reading your article I understand the glove is quite a personal piece of protective equipment and you need your own glove not someone else’s. 

    There is loads of information here, allowing for a player to make an informed decision when buying and using a new glove.

    I like that you have included tips on how, or how not to store them.

      Hi, Louise and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Yes, you are right about it is a lot to think about it. But too, it depends also a little bit how ambitious you are. Playing in the garden or with friends once in a week does not mean, for most people, that it needs to be 100% correct!

      Some people just start using it, not recommended, when others take many, many months to prepare the gloves. Most people are in the middle of these two groups.

      But having said that we need to have in mind that each people have their method to break the gloves and for that reason, the baseball gloves are unique for each person.

      As you say, the style, position you play in is an important factor because the size is different. Because of that, you need the right glove for that position. There is an excellent explaining in the Wikipediaabout that. I let the link follow so I will not just cope it.

      About your question, if another person can use your glove, it is a little like I start with about your ambition. There is no doubt that each glove is personally for each player. But if you are playing for the fun and enjoy only, there is no reason that you can´t check it out if you can use it. One same time is right to have in mind that it is in the basic very few things you need to play. The glove, bat and ball and that it is!

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    My grandson plays ball. He is on one of those traveling teams, and he is quite good. I was thinking about getting him a new glove. I know he won’t like it at first because his old one is entirely broken in. 

    But with your instructions, I can help him learn to soften and break it in. I am so excited. And I love the 
    Rawlings player preferred baseball glove. It appears to have excellent ratings. I think he would do well with this one. 

    It is an Amazon prime item also, and I need it quickly before he leaves for another game in a few days. I can’t thank you enough for helping me out with this situation. You are a Godsend.
