Baseball Glove Repair
Baseball glove repair on this glove wasn't bad and didn't take that long. This glove, like all of the ones I get, was pretty dry and that's why the original laces in the lower web had broken some time ago. The owner tried to relace the glove with some real thin lace, but it wasn't strung correctly and the lace was too thin and weak and it all broke in a short period of time. The finger laces were also getting loose and needed tightened.
The rest of the glove lacing wasn't too bad, though, and so the required baseball glove repair time on this one was about 15 minutes to restring the broken lace, another 15 minutes to tighten up other loose runs and then about 10 minutes to rub in some conditioner. I would have liked to put more conditioner on this one, but like always at this time of year, I usually get gloves that break during a game and then glove is needed in the next day or two. I don't want to have the glove too sticky or have excess conditioner on it when the player needs it. So, I just put a little on to soften up the leather and get some color back.
The glove turned out nice as you can see below. It didn't take long to fix and the player had it for the next game...an overnight fix as far as he was concerned.
