Which lens to get for outdoor sports?

Using a 7D.  I shoot a lot of my kids outdoor sports (Baseball, Lacrosse, Football).  I purchased the Canon 70-200 2.8 in 2006 to use indoors when they played hockey.  It has worked great and is great shape.  Problem now is as the fields get bigger the 70-200 is not enough of a zoom.

My question-does it make sense for me to sell the 70-200 f/2.8 and get the 100-400 f/4.5?  Being that the majority of shooting is now outdoors I think the 400 length serves as a bigger benefit than the f/2.8 on the 70-200.  Is there another quality lens I should be looking at as well?

Appreciate your feedback.

Canon EOS 7D
