EF 70-300 4-5.6 IS USM vs. newer EF 70-300 4-5.6 IS II USM?

I would like to buy a modestly-priced Canon EF 70-300mm lens primarily for daylight baseball infield shots of my grand kids. Camera is a Canon D6 full-frame. Is the newer IS II USM lens really worth the extra money over the IS USM version?

The newer IS II USM has a Nano USM motor, 9 aperture blades and the display window (not needed) while the older IS USM has 8 blades and regular USM motor. I don't do movies.

I truly appreciate any and all comments and suggestions.
