How long does it take to completely relace a glove and what does it cost for a payibg customer? My old beauty could do with a relacing but noone in Sweden can do a good job for a fair price...

Fielders Choice Glove Repair


24 hr Turnaround on all relace jobs



I started repairing  baseball gloves in 1986. I was 12 years old playing baseball in an All-Star tournament when my glove "broke" between games. This was my "Gamer" and it was crucial that I fix it before the next game. I didn't have any extra leather lace in my bat bag, but I did have an extra pair of cleats in there. Quickly I pulled all of the shoelace out from one of my cleats, and taught myself right then and there to relace. It did the trick, I didn't miss one out of the game and was able to use my "Gamer" for the rest of the day. Needless to say as soon as I got home I took some lace out of an extra glove I had and replaced the shoestring with leather. From that day on I was the "Glove Guy", repairing gloves for family,friends, coaches & teammates. Repairing gloves is not my "job" it's my passion. I love baseball gloves and truly enjoy bringing them back to life. So be assured that your glove will be treated with the utmost love and care. Finally, every glove is cleaned and reconditioned before it is shipped out at no extra cost.
