Can you embroider a softball glove?
To embroider an existing glove it would need to be at least partially deconstructed before it could be embroidered. This is not cost effective and can cause serious damage to the glove. We suggest the classic marker, or finding a laser engraver who can burn your personalization on the glove.
How do you size a softball glove?
For proper sizing, measure from the tip of your index finger to the start of your wrist in inches. Your glove should have a snug fit. So, choose a size that currently fits your hand and not one that you think you can grow into.
How do you soften a new softball glove?
Pour a small amount of hot water (150 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit) over any area of your new glove you want to make softer. Do not put your glove in the microwave or use detergents to soften the glove, as this can damage the leather. You can also use a small amount of glove oil applied with a sponge.
Is glove steaming bad?
Steaming your glove is easy, quick and effective. However, the process can negatively affect the leather’s fibers. (That’s why steaming voids Wilson’s one-year glove warranty.) Steaming your glove will soften it, but will also make it less durable.

How do you determine softball bat size?

Is Vaseline good for baseball gloves?
Vaseline is another substance you can use to break in your glove. Vaseline contains various mineral oils and moisturisers that are effective leather softeners. In addition, Vaseline is useful for sealing and protecting your glove from drying out in hot environments and from exposure to dirt and dust.
