You can either buy glove conditioner or use something like shaving creme. Lather the glove with the oil and then place a softball in the pocket of the glove and use a rubber band to hold the ball in place. Then you can do pretty much anything to work in the glove like sticking it under the leg of a sofa or use the glove as a base during sliding practice.
The softball glove was invented in the 1920's.
A baseball outfielder glove is usually 12 1/2 to 12 3/4 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. A softball outfielder glove is usually 13 1/2 to 14 inches from the tip of the index finger to the heel of the glove. Since a softball is larger than a baseball, a softball glove will be larger than a baseball glove. However, this doesn't mean that you can't use a baseball glove for playing softball. It just means that you will have less margin of error when catching the softball because of the smaller pocket a baseball glove has.
No, the glove is intended for baseball, by fielders and pitchers who want a little longer glove for scooping up balls. It can be used for softball, bit does not have a larger pocket that would make a strictly softball glove better.
i never used an oven to break in my mitt but a very good way is to oil your glove (you can buy glove oil at almost any sporting goods store), put a softball in the web, rubberband it, stick it under your matress as you sleep. this will not work by just the first time, i did it to my glove about 3 times and i already felt a difference as i played.
Sure. A softball glove is made of the same materials that a baseball glove is made of (high grade leather). They need time to be broken in. Oiling the glove will help with this process.
