Louisville Slugger Glove Cream
Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich.

Glove oil can be a great asset to have when owning a glove. Oiling your glove provides many benefits, and can greatly increase the longevity of your glove when done properly. After purchasing a new glove, putting a light coat of oil on it prior to the break-in process can reduce the time it takes to get your glove ready to play. Incorporating a light oiling of your glove into your preseason ritual can also extend the life of your glove. Give the most attention to the laces and the pocket, as those two areas tend to take the brunt of the beating. Always wipe away dirt and debris from your glove before oiling, and wash your hands to ensure you're not transferring any unwanted grime to the leather. Be sure to use a towel or sponge to apply the oil. After applying oil to the sponge, gently rub it into the glove. It is imperative not to use too much oil, because too much can do more harm than none at all. Always remember to read the instructions on your bottle of glove oil prior to use, as they are there to help you. Free Shipping!
