Baseball? With a 50mm? You really MUST be joking! What you need is a 300mm F4 at least, and as regards the cropping with a 50mm - forget it. You will be so far from the action that cropping will still leave you with a mush of pixels, no more. I grew up with Nikon lenses, and for me the F1.4 is the lens for indoor candlelit photos, not for sports. The 1.8 also is a useful lens, but neither is for the purposes you mention. Get real and get the 70/200 VRIFED F2.8 and perhaps a TC14 E and spend some money properly, or else you will be wasting your time and money together. You can go for the Sigma equivalents if you choose, but - start thinking photography!
