    Thanks for your article. I didn’t know that so much thought went into preparing a baseball glove for use. It kind of reminds me of when I played lacrosse, and we had to keep throwing the ball into the lacrosse stick to make it deeper. Is there something like the steamer for that too?

    Now that I read your article, I will feel more knowledgeable when I talk to my baseball friends. Also, I will recommend it to them if they don’t already know about glove steamers.

      Hello, Charles, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefit of the article too.

      Yes, it is a similar idea behind and as when you throw the ball in the lacrosse stick. Make it softer and more comfortable to play with it.

      As a former Lacrosse player, you would like this article because there has been a lot of development in the lacrosse too!

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

    It is exactly what I’ve been searching for. You even had a picture of a girl. My young sister has just joined a baseball team in school and is looking to steam her gloves. I thought she was joking, “what do you mean steam your glove.” Anyway, you have given me a hint, and I know what to do. You already answered the question I might have asked in the FAQ. Detailed post here. Thanks

    It is great to know about this. To be honest, I never knew one could steam a baseball glove at home. Though I have never seen anyone doing it before my son’s coach told me to help him steam his glove and I was totally clueless on how to do it. Thankfully I read this post, and I got the full list on how to go about it. The process seems very easy, though, but I’m more than sure it is not as easy as it seems. But I will still give it a try.

    I know the Vaseline softener does a wonderful job in making the glove-soft and retaining its shape. There is a type of leather that requires drying in the shade only. Hence, direct sunlight might not be appropriate. 

    Do I need to hit the edges after the glove has completely dried or when it is semi-dry?

    That is a great tip on using a pre-conditioner.

    Thank you for this informative article.

    I really appreciate this very detailed post on how to do it properly. You even go as far as to give specific tips based on the player’s position!

    I have to say, I’m a little nervous trying this on my own but, since you mentioned the steaming wouldn’t damage it, I’m going to give it a try.

    Thank you so much!

    Scott

      Hello, Alan, and thank you.

      For the Lanolin and E vitamin, Wilson has made an excellent product for it. Here is a link to it on Amazon as there are reviews too about users experience of it.

      For the home steamer, I am working on, will be ready soon, ideas about how to do it and it will publish in this article. But so you don´t need to wait for it, here is an excellent article about it.

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