Looking for the best way to Break-In your NEW Baseball or Softball Glove?
Every season, thousands of players struggle with the best way to quickly break in their fielding gloves in an effective manner without damaging the quality of the glove. There are many discussions about the best way to break in a glove, and some of the methods include steaming, putting it in an oven, wrapping rubber bands around the glove, putting water on it, etc. We really like the methods discussed by Aso, who is the Wilson glove guru. An employee of the major glove brand, he is the 'go to' guy who many big time MLB players, including Brandon Phillips, ask each year to break in their gloves for them. Check out the video of his work below, and you can always check out our website to find the BEST deals on Wilson A2000s and A2Ks.

The Easton S1 Senior League Baseball Bat is an all composite two-piece -10 2 5/8" barrel design that offers a light swing weight with a lot of barrel. The light weight composite design allows hitters to control their barrel and drive balls into the gap. As a member of the speed series, it features a streamlined barrel design that removes excess mass from the barrel for a lighter swing weight than most bats in this size.
The Power Brigade S1 handle is, in our opinion, one of the best features of this series. It features Easton's patented SIC Black Carbon, which provides the batter with a more comfortable feel and grip while also allowing for more forgiveness upon swing and contact with the ball. This bat is also approved in almost every youth league, including USSSA, Little League, Dixie, Babe Ruth, Pony, and more!
It comes in lengths of 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 32 inches.
The S1 is very well balanced, and swings easily while allowing for the batter to improve swing speed. However, with a focus on swing speed by Easton, this bat does not sacrifice power and 'pop' as many others do. This bat flexes upon contact and is a great option for all youth players who are looking to improve their hitting this upcoming season. At proplayersupply.com we are currently offering a 10% off coupon code TAKEOFF that can be applied to any purchase. So come check this bat and many other great products out today. Easton bats are top-of-the-line and the most popular choice among youth, high school, and college baseball players today. #PlayLikeAPro

PRO PLAYER SUPPLY: MLB WORKOUT EXCLUSIVE
Dustin Pedroia is the starting 2nd baseman for the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB). Pedroia has won multiple awards in Major League Baseball, including the prestigious 2007 American League Rookie of the Year and the 2008 AL MVP award. He also won a Silver Slugger as a second baseman and a Gold Glove in 2008, 2011, and 2013. In 2008, he finished second overall in the AL in batting average. In addition to his dominant offensive performance over the past many years, Pedroia has been a major defensive contributor to the Red Sox.
While standing at only 5' 8" and weighing under 185 lbs, he hits the ball with relatively strong power. He is an outstanding defensive player as well, as is known for his strong will and 'Never Give Up' attitude, which has led to him signing a long contract this season with the Red Sox. His workouts are intense, and he focuses on off season training that helps sharpen the tools that make him such a great player. We focus on one of his workouts below. Thanks to our friends at mlbplayerworkouts.com for the great information as always.

PRO PLAYER REVIEW
At Pro Player Supply, we aim to offer the best products for various sports. While the main focus of this blog is around baseball products, tips, and reviews, we are going to start adding a weekly Fastpitch product review and advice column. We sell a lot of Fastpitch products to both individuals and teams at the youth, high school, and college levels. Today, we are highlighting the Louisville Slugger LXT bat, which is the newest and hottest bat in Fastpitch for the upcoming 2014 season. It is the first ever 3-piece Fastpitch bat, and it is built with Louisville Slugger's patented TRU3 three-piece connection technology and a PURE 360 composite barrel. These components combine to create a bat with a lighter swing weight, far less vibration, and an overall better feel when the ball comes off of the bat. While the Xeno has been extremely popular and will remain a great bat to go with, the LXT provides a new bat option for Fastpitch players nationwide. We have seen this bat in person, and the new technology incorporated in this 3-piece bat is an amazing upgrade that all Fastpitch players need to experience. The swing speed is much lighter, and this can be felt in the first 50 swings or less. The reduced vibration allows for the bat to make powerful contact with the ball while you as the batter can maintain your natural swing speed and hitting style. These bats come in -10, -9, -8, and in Tee Ball size. Check out the new LXT bat today, and see how much this new technology can improve your game! #PlayLikeAPro

DAVID WRIGHT WORKOUT ROUTINE
-3rd Baseman and Team Captain for the New York Mets
-Consistently hits for power and steals bases
-Seven-time All Star
-Two-time Gold Glover Award Winner
-Bats Right/Throws Right
David Wright doesn't have time to mull over his options. "Third base is a reaction position," says the New York Mets star. "It's all instinct. If I think too much, I might take one off the face." Wright saves his mug by performing explosive exercises that match the moves he makes on the field. His program can help you move better in every direction.
FOUR KEY EXERCISES
Exercise: Side throw
How to do it: Stand 3 feet from a solid wall, at a right angle to it, feet shoulder-width apart. Swing a medicine ball a bit to one side, then switch directions and throw it hard against the wall. Do two or three sets of four to eight repetitions, then switch sides and repeat.
Exercise: Romanian Deadlift
How to do it: Hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of your thighs. With your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent, bend forward at the hips until the weights are at midshin level. Pause, then lift your torso back to the starting position. Keep your back slightly arched throughout.
Exercise: Standing Jump and Reach
How to do it: Squat slightly with your feet shoulder-width apart and arms at your sides. Then quickly explode upward, reaching both arms overhead. Be sure to land with soft knees. Do six to 10 repetitions.
Exercise: Side Lunge
How to do it: Rest a barbell across your upper back. Take a long lunge step directly to one side, keeping your toes pointed straight ahead. Descend as you step so that your lunging thigh ends up parallel to the floor. Then push yourself back up to the starting position.
