I don't have access to a fender roller, so what's the best DIY method?

My body guy used to have a real fender roller that he used on his M3 but he doesn't own it anymore. I have been told the best DIY way to do it is in fact with a wooden baseball bat to minimize the chance of cracking or denting the paint on or around the fender. Any suggestions? My 20 inch Axis Pentas are here, waiting on tires and I would like to go ahead and do this before my tires get here...
Thanks
