Catch, lanolin, shoe shine for me... Don't like the baking method.

Also, strategically beating the hell out of it works well too...:

I don't have time for all that. I was told that you just have to apply vaseline to the glove then put it in the oven. All I need to know is how long and at what temp.

Default baking?

doesnt that dry out the leather? it may make it tighter,shrink to ur hands but it tens to dry and crak the leather.If you are talking breaking in ur glove use horse linament and wrap it in plastic for 24 hours,it soaks into the leather and makes it more subtle

Preheat your grill to 275, smother your glove in K.C. Masterpiece, Bake for 15 minutes on both sides. Let cool and it should be ready.

Charcoal is better than gas.

don't bake your glove. slather it in some leather cream as mentioned above and use some Irwin Quik Grip clamps to crush a ball in the pocket and leave it over night.

No. Makes about as much sense as running your bat over to break it in.

The leather is stiff as a board if I knew a vinci took this long to break in I would have bought another Nokona
