The most natural and best way to do this is to just use the glove. Playing catch is ideal for breaking in a glove, but it can also take a while for it to get worn in all the way. Besides this, they make oil and foam that can be rubbed into gloves to loosen the leather. You can buy these at most sports stores (Dicks sells them for sure). Try putting a Baseball in the pocket of the glove, and tying the glove closed over the ball with a rubber band ot string. Keep it this way for several hours (overnight).

The two main things you must do is soften the leather and form the pocket. Most glove manufacturers have oils that can be used on the leather to help soften it. You might check the manufacturer's website to find out whether they sell these oils. If they don't, the leather can be also be softened by rubbing the glove with vaseline, saddle soap, or mink oil. To form the pocket, place a baseball in the pocket and tie the glove shut with string or shoestrings. Play a lot of catch when you first get the glove. This also helps to form the pocket.

The best way to wear in a glove is to first by playing catch with it. That is one way. but if you want to try something different, the best way to do it is to attach a softball to a stick (i think you can actaully buy them now) and hit your glove with it. just make sure you are hitting the net and the palm of the glove. BUT DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, PUT IT IN THE OVEN!

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.

What is the best way to cover cuts and scalds when cooking?

When I was a professional cook, I found the best way to cover a burn, was to use a product called second skin, it is a jelly like pad, and then cover that with gauze and then a glove if it is on your hand or just the gauze if it is on your arm. For cuts a band aid then then a glove or a finger cot.
