Baseball Glove Story- what's yours?

Posted on January 7, 2015 at 10:58am 6 Comments

My son has a basic youth baseball glove.  I was looking to make the glove last a little longer and make it look sharp. I sent it to Deland Cochran at New Life Gloves.

He took it apart, reconditioned the leather and laced it with maroon and gold laces to match his team colors. We now have a well built glove that should easily last another season or…

Hi Bill,

Thanks for adding me to your  site. I joined as a friend of Tim Mayo, who among other things turns bats in Conn. I also turn bats, and have a copy lathe for sale, and Tim suggested I join your group, and someone might be interested in the machine.

Hey Bill, thanks for adding me to the check swing.  I am wondering if you know where I can find college players looking for summer ball.  I currently have 9 players but need to find 6 fully committed ball players willing to travel on weekends and 1 week in Florida for games and tournaments.  We last ur were 8-9-2 but was the runners up in the southern timber league world series.  I am looking for talented ball players who are in college now and can hit for contact and RBI producer, plus a few pitchers.  Heavily need a starting catcher and a utility player who can catch and play first base.  It's best if players can play more than one position.  Any help is appreciated.  Players feel free to contact me via text now as I am busy man working long he's and trying to get things ready for summer ball.  Our website is  my number is 615-838-7730.  Thanks!

I have been a couple times. It's the largest baseball convention in the world. Approximately 4,000 coaches attend. It's four days of non-stop baseball. A massive amount of baseball committees and their leaders, organization leaders, camp/clinic/batting cage owners, and just about every vendor you can imagine.
