Take it to a body shop and have them do it. It is usually pretty reasonable and after they roll them they can re-spray the fender with undercoating. If you don't do this you need to find someone with an actual fender roller. Do not try the baseball bat method unless you really know what you are doing.

Very difficult not to crack paint using the baseball bat. Find someone with a fender roller, comes out better, still a risk of pain cracking though...a little undercoating or anti-rust paint on the underside is a good idea.

if you want to use the baseball bat, jack the back of the car up so you can get the bat in there, lower the car with the bat in and use the tire for leverage, then roll that sucka.
