If you're still holding the glove you still have possession of the ball. You don't have to be wearing the glove.

There was a play one time where the ball was hit to the pitcher and it got stuck in his glove, so he threw the whole glove to the first baseman. The batter was out because he still had control of the ball, even though it was still in somebody else's glove.

play catch with it, but really nothing else will help you a lot.

Then when you wake up you should take the ball out and start opening and closing your glove for a while. That should do the trick. also an easy way to break your glove in is put 2 pucks side by side, close your glove and put rubber bands around it as tight as it can be it doesn't take more than a half hour to make it easy to open and close

How long should the rawlings pro preferred baseball glove last?

If you take care of it, the glove should last you between 3-5 years. I play college ball, so I use it pretty much every day and my Rawlings Pro Preferred glove is showing little signs of wear. People that I play with have been using the same glove all four or five of their college careers and their gloves look almost flawless (aside from dirt and regular wear and tear). If you don't take care of the glove, it will still last you at least 2 years.
