Anyone have recommendations for a quality softball cleat that actually provides arch support/mid foot stability for a player with severe over-pronation and hyper-mobility. Chronic Plantar Fasciitis and pain was relieved with McConnel heel/arch combo taping method. Thanks

Not exactly sure on the softball cleat rules in FLA, but if you really want a mid foot stable shoe, a metal-cleat shoe is going to be more rigid and prevent a whole lot of excessive motion, theoretically.  Within the shoe itself however, the foot is free to go into planus/planovalgus/pronation a fair amount.  You might be able to improve this with an OTC insert to provide additional motion control.  High top models are of course available as well.

agree with shill

off the shelf inserts make a bad shoe an OK shoe no matter what the bottom of the shoe looks like.

Don't buy cleats online, people need to go try on every set from a local store for the best fit. Don't worry about cleat patterns just make sure it comports all areas of the foot. All professional athletes have specially designed footwear, especially baseball/softball players. There was a good article here. Check out the style you like and go try them on first.

Nike cleats are known to be the best.
