Hi. I'm Deland Cochran. I re-lace and repair used baseball and
softball gloves. Back in the 80's, I worked in a sporting goods store. From time to time, someone would come in
with their ball glove and ask if I could fix it. We sold those relacing kits that have a thin piece of lacing and a
useless tool. Maybe you've tried one. As I fixed more gloves, I began looking for better quality lacing and better
tools to use.
Over the years, I still would relace my own glove
or my son's or someone on my son's baseball team. Now he has finished playing college baseball and will move
on to softball.
The more gloves I fixed, the better I got at it. Now, over 27 years and thousands
of gloves later, I still enjoy helping people keep their favorite glove on the field.
Then one day I
got the idea of offering my services to others via the internet. I know a lot more about gloves than I do the web or
computers, so please excuse my lack of web savy.
I would love to help you
with your glove. Please contact me and we will get started.
Years ago, a friend described me as a simple man. I thought it was
kind of an insult at the time. But since then I've discovered that it's a gift to be simple. I'm thankful
for it. I try to treat others right. My mother still lives nearby and she would get very angry if she found
out that I did anyone wrong, so I stay on the straight and narrow like she raised me. My wife is a great support to
me. She has seen the before and after gloves, and has seen the smile on someone's face when they got their
finished glove back. She hopes you will let me help you with your glove.
