The best men's baseball mitts are built for a pliable and responsive feel from day one, but even professional quality mitts will exhibit much better performance once properly broken in. Breaking in a leather baseball glove is a time honored tradition, and although players have been known to resort to some truly outlandish methods, safely breaking in a glove without damaging the leather is a proven process. Start by applying a moisturizing agent such as shaving cream or a specially formulated glove oil to the leather until it is saturated, then place a baseball or softball in the pocket of the glove before wrapping it tightly with leather ties, shoe strings, or rubber bands. Leave the mitt to mold around the ball for up to two weeks to deepen the pocket and create a more supple surface. Once the glove is unwrapped, get it ready for in game action with a few lively games of catch. The right break in process can turn a quality mitt into a great glove, and with the selection of adult baseball mitts now available from Academy Sports, you can always find the right model for your position and playing style.
