Pain in Rectus Femoris

Okay I am an active person, I run, work out, and play organized sports. I recently had an injury during a Softball game that involved my straining my quad-muscle (it feels like it would be the rectus femoris). I only know this from anatomy class for nursing school. Now, I have been doing the R.I.C.E regiment, with Naproxen and Motrin, it's been three weeks now since the injury, and I played a game last night, I thought I was healthy to pain with stretching or anything of sorts. Needless to say I slammed the ball at my first at bat and hit an in the park home run, with adrenaline pumping I did not notice pain in my leg until after running the bases, so I feel that I either re-injured or did not give it time to heal. I did however give it a rest those three weeks. My question is, is there a proper way to athleticaly tape my thigh and wear compression shorts to stop future injuries and allow myself to play more games this summer? thanks for any help
