Breaking it in

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

We love our old, game-tested glove, but nothing lasts forever. Old Faithful’s days are numbered. We just hope we can make it through the summer season.

We’re trying out a few new gloves, and, while we’re excited about the new ones, they need to be broken in.

There’s been talk on the forum about this, of course. Everyone has their own take on it. How do you break in your gloves?

Pitchers and Catchers Are In!

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

Pitchers and catchers have (finally!) reported to Spring Training. It’s a happy weekend for all of us who are eager for the 2009 MLB season to start. After the controversy of this off-season, we can finally focus on developing talent on our favorite teams. That’s right, it’s time for fundamentals. For the rookies and the veterans, the wannabes and the has-beens. Even as a never-was, this time of year I always think of my first glove.

Sure, there are more baseball glove manufacturers now than when I got my Ron Darling–inscribed MacGregor glove. But some things never change. I just saw a glove under a car on my street, sitting there just like my glove sat under my dad’s car overnight. What advice would you share for breaking in a new baseball glove?
