Picking Out a Glove:

Most little league kids should have a glove between 11 and 12 inches. 11.5-11.75 is a great size for most kids.

1. The sooner you purchase a new glove, the more time your player will have to break it in. Bringing a brand new glove to your first game in April won't give you time to break it in, and stiff leather makes it difficult to squeeze the glove after a catch. Some youth glove models are made of soft leather that is nearly game-ready right off the shelf. These gloves aren't made from the highest quality of leather but will often do the job if you need to purchase one right before the season begins. Higher quality gloves are made of leather that takes longer to break so if you're looking at a product like that it's a good idea to purchase one long before the season begins so your glove can be broken in before Spring. 

2. The most prevalent glove break-in method is playing lots of catch. Glove manufacturers sell baseball-shaped mallets that can be used to pound the pocket of a glove several times over a short period of time to replicate a game of catch.

3. After forming the pocket of a glove, you can apply a shaving cream containing lanolin to all surfaces and laces to help soften and preserve the leather. This is also a good product to use to maintain the leather after a glove is exposed to an excessive amount of dirt / dust or when you put it away during the offseason. Baby wipes can be used to remove dirt from the leather prior to the application of shaving cream.

4. Some manufacturers recommend and sell glove oil.  If you choose to purchase this type of conditioning product, we suggest you verify the manufacturer of your glove recommends the use of a specific type of oil on the model of glove you have.

One thing to consider:  eBay, Craigslist and similar websites often have several good used gloves for auction or sale.  If you can find one that is the correct size and has already been broken in properly, you won't have to go through the break-in process and you'll save some cash as well.
