Don't tie the glove up if your and infielder. It will create a deep pocket which makes it hard to find the ball on double plays. Also don't steam the glove it damages the leather

ME Party Squid says:

When you put water on a glove it ruins the leather. Also look at how this dude throws. He looks like he is 5 years old trying to throw

Fight The Clock says:

Lol @ this dudes throwing form.

Don't take advice from someone who doesn't know how to properly throw a baseball ?

Dezzi G says:

For anyone complained or criticizing that the water method doesn't work, yes it does. It's called hot water treatment, and it's meant for leather gloves. If your globe isn't real leather, sucks for you. But don't talk crap about the video.

Water ruins the glove

Lil A says:

If u have a Nokona the hot water will ruin the glove if it's hot enough don't do boiling water gloves are made out of animal skin be smart

LAD Fan says:

BASEBALL Is Life says:

Putting in a softball and oil it with mink oil and tie it with a belt and put it under my mattress

Drawing Jack says:

Does it work

Wander says:

The disclaimer used here is "this is the way it works for me" and I would like to know how the heck it did? 1st of all you DO NOT get your glove wet to break it in… Major MISTAKE!

Jake Carney says:

This video sucks

jack wilson says:

Your a fucking dumbass you never put water on your glove unless it's raining you dumb fuck

Kaleb Stuckey says:

Shaving cream or baby oil, duct tape a baseball or softball (for bigger pocket) to a stick or bat handle and start smacking! Then, just play catch with it

Art H says:

Case Peterson says:

Colby Phoenix says:
