It depends wheather you are a rightie or a leftie.

If you throw with your right hand, you should have your left foot forward when you release the ball. So take either one step with your left foot, or two steps right, left. (that's what I do.)

If you throw with your left, do the opposite

What are some good strength training drills for a fastpitch softball player?

I play softball, and from personal experience, walk-offs, wrist snaps, and pitching with a weighted ball really helped me gain streangth and speed. Walk-offs is when you walk into ur pitching motion, thus helping you kick your leg out farther, and giving you more speed. For the wrist snaps, its basicly holding your arm and pushing the ball into a net with only your wrist, no arm motions or anything. You can buy a weighted ball at any sporting goods place, and you can also use it in any drill.
