R6 Help with AF (sports)

So I just got done shooting volleyball indoors & the photos turned out great. Shot with an R6, RF 70-200mm at 2.8 and AF Method eye detection.

Got outside at baseball and it would NOT focus on the player’s face. It kept focusing on that larger clump of dirt to the left of the pitcher. Also, when I focused on the catcher often times it wanted to focus on the players in the background. I had it set on AI Servo (should I be on one shot?) and eye detection. (Photo here was half way decent here but the square kept moving around to focus on everything but the catcher)

what am I doing wrong? Fairly new to the R6 but have never had it do this before.
