Re: Yes, both images are a little soft.

Overhead light -- note the tiny shadows.  Skin tones will be cool, eyes will be hidden, and necks will be shaded.

Busy backgrounds -- you need longer lenses to blur the background or you need change your angle of view so that the backgrounds are farther away relative to the subject.   If you're in the first-base bleachers, the best shots will be of plays at first base, provided you can keep the shortstop and second basemen out of the background.

Slight softness -- are you using a tripod?  Are you focusing manually? Perhaps for static situations, as with the batter in the batters box, manual might be better.  Preset the focus and fire when ready.
