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.

What is tha best way to wear in a softball glove?

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 wear in a new baseball glove?

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).

Do you put your baseball glove in the oven to break it in?

Generally speaking a new baseball glove is "stiff" and needs to be "broken in" There are several ways to accomplish this and one way is not to place it in an oven.Techniques to properly break in a new baseball glove are to:Daily rub the glove gently with olive oil;After that, place a baseball firmly in the center of the glove and fold it over the ball. This makes a "center" place in the glove where most of caught balls fall into;Practice catching ball with the glove each day and begin to feel the glove gain some softness. The glove should feel comfortable on your hand.For the most part, a new baseball glove can be "broken in" in a week to ten days.Each player has his/her own way on this procedure, but to answer the question, no, a glove is never placed in an oven.
