Providing the stadium doesn't have gear restrictions as some do for spectators, I'd take the D700 and 70-200 f2.8.  Shooting under stadium lights is significantly more difficult than you'd think if you'd never done it.  If you shoot anywhere near the shutter speeds you should be shooting to capture anything but motion blur with major league players, you're going to want shutter speeds in the 1/800-1/1600 range which is probably going to put you into the 1000-3200 ISO range for the early part of the game (when there is still some ambient natural light as well) and 3200-6400+ as the game progresses.
