A 6-foot person at 1.5km is about 0.07 degrees of view.

A 1000mm lens on a 1.5x crop sensor has a vertical field of view of 0.9 degrees.

Your baseball player will take up less than 1/10 of the frame.

if you do the math...

sensor is 2848 pixels high * (0.07 degree player / 0.8 degree vertical field of view)

Your baseball player will be around 250 pixels tall.

The only way you're going to make a strong image is by getting closer...

Amen bro
