Hip Bursitis: The most common condition that occur is called hip bursitis, due to fixed foot and turing of the hip. Usually a repeated ice pack for twice a day for 15 minutes each time and taking anti inflammatory for ten days should resolve it. If persist see your doctor for a possible cortison shot.

Out Of Shape: It is also possible that you over used the muscles, since you have not been batting for 2 years. Treat the area like you would a sprain and see your doctor, if it does not improve. In the future, make sure you have thoroughly stretched and warmed up before the activity.
