hello, scottak! i'd say the footflex; it involves two good streches, bent leg and staight leg. There are many other stretches that may me appropriate, but i would include these two. hope you can steal home!

you can find the footflex on this site.

bob buddy: i doubt any of the poor souls on this board play softball. most of us have trouble walking to the store. the last time i played fast pitch soft ball the pitcher could bring it at nearly 100mph . there was not a lot of hitting going on and the only stretch you needed was to get out of the way of the inside pitch.
