If you're on one of the baselines, not too many rows back you can get good shots of the pitchers, batters and infielders. The opposite field and center field will be tough, requiring a lot of cropping. Still, it'd work. Put the EF 400mm f5.6L into your consideration because it's very sharp, but lacks IS. There's also a 100-400 f4 to 6.5 IS that's worth considering, but both the 300 and 400 primes will be sharper. Generally you'll have good light, so shutter speeds can stay pretty high even at 5.6 and ISOs around 800.
