Baseball Glove Repair


Hello…and welcome to BaseballGloveRestore.com.
I just wanted to take a few minutes, this won’t take long, to show you the results
of a very simple Baseball Glove Repair job something that nearly everyone watching this
can do in a reasonable time and at low cost, especially if you already have lace, conditioner
and some tools from previous repairs maybe. Now if you have kids playing baseball and
softball, or maybe you’re a coach, and you see broken gloves and laces all of the time,
you might want to learn how to fix your own gloves, or maybe even the gloves of other
players, just to get the gloves back in their hands so that they can play the very next
day, or even the same day. You could also make some money for yourself doing this…and
it is relatively easy money but Whatever the case, you may really want to consider doing
your own glove repairs. Ok…enough said about that so let’s take
a look at this glove that I was just given just a little while ago to fix up as people
often ask of me. Ok…this was an older Rawlings H2500 glove.
I usually can date these gloves these older gloves by seeing other ones like it on the
internet but I couldn’t easily find this one I’m not sure why. However, it’s simply
a neighbor’s glove, a middle-aged guy, who had it lying around and he found out that
I could fix up gloves and restore them found that out from another neighbor so he just
asked me if I would do the same for this glove really for nostalgic reasons. He hasn’t
played for many years and he’s not going to but he could put the glove out somewhere and
have it as a piece of conversation and this is actually very common not the first time
I’d done this for somebody. So let’s take a look at how this glove was
and how it turned out after I was basically done. Now this glove really wasn’t that dirty
at all so I really didn’t spend a lot of time cleaning it other than wiping it off
a little bit. However, it did need a lot of conditioning. It had broken laces in the web and worn out,
stretched loose finger laces. And here’s the thing these issues that I’ve just mentioned
for the most part pretty Standard Stuff. Almost all of the gloves that I’ve repaired in
the past had these same exact issues. And these are not difficult issues to handle almost
anyone can make these repairs in no time at all and do a pretty good job. And really this
is why “Fix That Glove!” was made is to help people save time and money doing these
repairs. Now think about it there’s really no reason
to send your favorite glove away for a week or so and pay a lot of money for repairs that
you can really do in a short time for way, way less. You can use the glove the next day
too no big deal! So let’s take a look now at some before
and after pics of this glove. Ok here’s the first pic. You can see how the
glove here looks pretty dry you can see a little bit of the lacing on the top but overall
it’s just a shot to show you kind of how the thing has aged. Here’s what it looks like after. Now these laces I have here are chocolate.
They got a little bit dark because of the conditioner, however, it looks pretty good,
almost looks black but it’s gonna it’s gonna lighten up. But you can see how good the leather
looks now that it’s been conditioned. It looks like a totally different glove. This is what it looks like before and this
is what is looks like after. Here’s another shot here. This is a good shot
to show how worn and stretched the finger lacing is. Here’s what it looks like after.
Looks a little better. Look how good the leather looks. Looks totally different. And the lacing
in the top. Before After Here’s another shot, similar to the last one.
This is what it looks like before. And after. Again you can see the chocolate lace. Here’s a pretty good shot here. This shows
how worn the finger lacing is and stretched. It also shows you the broken web at the top
left which makes the glove really not usable. It’s kind of strange too. If you look where
the pocket is, for a right hander, I don’t know if the guy was cross eyed or what but
it’s in the wrong place. I would expect it to be on the left hand side of the web but
hey you never know. Anyway this is what the glove looked like
before and after. Totally different. Now if you’ve noticed I haven’t tied the lacing yet
because sometimes I still tighten it and pull it. However it looks really, really good. Look
at the leather after it’s been conditioned. The web looks great. Totally useable if he
wanted to. Before And after. Here’s a better shot. A little bit close up.
You can see the finger lacing and the web. That’s what it looks like now. And after. And here’s just another shot that shows you
the broken web. You’ll notice when I go to the next shot after how good the leather looks
but if you, this is where you can really see how the leather is dry and worn. And that’s what it looks like now. Much better.
Definitely looks a lot different. And the web lacing looks really nice on the top. And after. Here’s another shot of the broken web. Now
I can’t put the glove in the same position because once I fix that I can’t really place
it that way but again you can see worn lacing on the top. Before and after. This actually looks like a new glove. If you notice the leather doesn’t look bad
at all. And here’s just another pic of the broken
lace. I kind of took a lot of these, but that’s what it looks like now. Looks pretty good. Ok so that’s it! This glove turned out pretty
good. I guarantee you that the guy who gave this to me this will really be surprised how
good it looks and feels. And again, this is true for really every glove I’ve done from
what I can remember. So let’s go over a few things again, or
things you might want to note or remember. Now these repairs were easy, just the finger
lacing and web lacing needed replaced. True, if I wanted to I could have replaced all of
the lacing to have everything match, and I still might but it’s not necessary. And
also, compared to most gloves, the web lace run took more time because it weaved around
a lot and the old, dry stiff lacing made it hard to work with. And lastly, the web lacing
was broken and hanging out so I had to figure out how that lace was originally run. I talk about these things in the eBook “Fix
That Glove!” too in more detail, and how to handle them. Conditioning like it says is the most important
part of glove care and I’ve found this to be true every time. But you need to know what
conditioners to use this is really important. I cover conditioners too in the ebook and
how to use some of them and which ones not to use. Now these are all things you can do yourself
too. Being able to do your own Baseball Glove Repair will save you time, no downtime for

  1. I have always kept a small repair kit in my coaches bag. It's worth it to see the kids face when you make their fav glove good again. But be ready! Everyone will want a glove repaired! lol
