No Oil on New Baseball Gloves

No oil on new baseball gloves? Why and what should we do?

We have had a bunch of inquires from people asking about Coach Scott’s reasons for not using oil on new baseball gloves. Below is a recap of his comments made earlier this year.

Coach Scott: The reason I do not like oil to break in baseball gloves is simple. In my opinion oil takes life out of the glove. Most baseball gloves come preconditioned, now it is up to the user of the glove to break it in the old fashion way, by using it. Oil can make the leather to soft which allows the leather to stretch more than it should. This can lead to ripping of the leather. Oil also, adds weight to the glove and can make it heavy. To make a baseball glove last a long time, make sure the laces stay tight. Do not throw the glove in your bat bag when you are done using it. It will only get smashed and bent out of shape. Carry the baseball glove in your hand. When you get home put it up for safe keeping by placing the palm of the glove down (Do not leave your glove in the trunk of a car). As a baseball mitt starts to age they seem to dry out. Now is the time for oil. Use a very light amount. If you you think you have the perfect amount you most likely have to much. Use very thin layers. P.S. when buying a glove, the stiffer the leather, the better the leather.

So what Coach Scott is saying is to use your baseball glove to properly break-it in. As the glove ages and dry’s, then use oil and use it very sparingly. I’ve seen coaches catchers mitt and it is almost 20 years old. They are as good as new.

Easton V12 Alloy Baseball Bats


    Coach Scott says: Easton V12 Baseball Bats…Increases Bat Speed!

Easton V12 Alloy Baseball Bats feature:
Easton V12 Alloy Metal Baseball Bat

What I like about the V12 is the streamlined barrel profile, which maximizes swing weight proficiency. This streamlined design helps to optimize the use of the wall thickness throughout the baseball bats profile, taper contour, and handle. The flex-rated 100 handle does provide decent stiffness which helps you control and balance the baseball bat. The VRS (Vibration Reduction System) rating of 80 for this baseball bat gives the Easton V12 a good feel on contact. What is really cool, Easton provides an exclusive 400 day warranty on this model.

Cecchi Chianti Classico 2006

Cecchi Chianti Classico 2006 is a great red wine for those hearty meat entrees. This is a full body wine that does round out in the finish. The nose will smell slight pepper, dark cherry’s and a hint of violet.

We just came back from the Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT. We had the pleasure of tasting of this and three other Cecchi (pronounced as Check Key) wines. This Chianti Classico is from the heartland of the Tuscany region of Italy.

This wine is delightful and finishishes very nicely on the palette. Click on the label and order yourself a bottle from Wine.com.
