Could add 7-10 days to your order, but optimally the process only takes a 1-2 days. Catcher's mitts tend to take a bit longer.
By clicking the "Agree" button and proceeding to add a Break-in Service to your order, you agree to our terms of service regarding all products with after-order service.
ALL SALES OF PRODUCTS WITH BREAK-IN SERVICE ARE FINAL.
ADDING BREAK-IN SERVICE TO YOUR ORDER VOIDS ANY AND ALL RETURN POLICY BECAUSE THE GLOVE WILL HAVE CLEAR SIGNS OF WEAR.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT HARD-SELL THIS SERVICE, NOR DO WE PROMISE THAT THE GLOVE IS “GAME READY.” THE GLOVE WILL BE “PRACTICE READY” AND THERE WILL BE SOME WORK LEFT FOR THE PLAYER TO DO TO COMPLETE THE BREAK-IN PROCESS AND MAKE THE GLOVE FIT AND FUNCTION PROPERLY. THE GLOVE WILL NOT BE PULVERIZED AND MUSHY SOFT. IT WILL HAVE FORM AND STRUCTURE. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A REALLY SOFT BREAK-IN, PLEASE LOOK FOR A DIFFERENT SERVICE.
Jeff's overall philosophy is that the player should handle at least the last 15% of break-in to make the glove properly fit and function on his or her hand.
The Process: Some moist heat and leather conditioner, mallet work and catching baseballs thrown at 60-plus mph. We will ship the glove when Jeff has caught 100 balls effortlessly with the glove. The glove will not catch the ball by itself.
Catching baseballs requires hours of repetitive practice!
