You get you some leather (glove) oil and rub it in, following the directions of course - don't overdo it at first. Put a Baseball in the mitt part where you want the ball to be caught and tie a rubber band around it to keep it very very tight. Place it under your kid's mattress for a couple of nights so they sleep on top of it to break it in some more. Then you just undo the rubber band, take the ball out, and throw it hard into the ground a ton of times, preferably grass or carpet and not dirt, and stomp on it with your shoes and stuff. Fold it in and out every which way possible, roll the bends back and forth really hard. You can even run over it with the car a few times (without the baseball in it!). Then re-oil it and play catch for a couple of weeks to break it in, which will probably be done in baseball practice anyway.

Oil. You can find the right kind in sports stores like dicks sporting goods in the baseball section. You can ask anyone that works there to help you and they can show you where it is and how to use it.

How do you bake a baseball glove?

First, oil or spray your glove down good. Then, place in the oven at 325 to 350 for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on stiffness of leather. Pull it out of the oven and rub off excess oil. As soon as you feel you can place your hand inside the heated glove do so. (I recommend a batting glove of some sorts for this part.) Once your hand is in work it a couple of times then place a baseball or softball in the pocket and close the glove as if you were making a catch and tie the the glove in this position. Then, let the glove sit for 4 or 5 hours. Untie the glove and work it for 30 minutes. Repeat as necessary.
