Reach is what you want. Expect gear restrictions however. The 70-200 is a good choice on the D7000 or D700 - my guess (but you may already know) is the D7000 is a bit better since you'll likely be cropping.

Yeah, I crop pretty heavily as is just to tweak composition most of the time, and I quite often I wish I had more than the 12MP from the D700. Maybe I can trade up to a D7100 before the game... heh...

Your best shots may be any plays at second or third, obviously. 200 on a DX sensor is even a bit short for second, I usually use a 400mm from the dugout and it's about right. The outfield is hopeless with 200mm, and first is pretty tiny, and home may not be very visible (netting, fans, etc?) but is small.

Interesting. I've also got a 1.7 TC I can throw in the bag.... maybe that'll get me close to second... but f4.8's probably pushing it.
