Older 300 f/2.8 for sports

My son is playing HS baseball and many of his games are at night.  I currently have a D500 and 70-200E and 200-500.  The 70-200 is short at times and at night the 200-500 is too slow.  How good for AF are the older 300 f/2.8?  Do the AF-S non VR autofocus fast?  What about the older screwdrive 300s?  How is the AF on that?  I am sure the newer VR models are even better, but they are too expensive for me.

In the alternative, i might get the 1.4 III for the 70-200, but I really think I need 2.8 speed
