I have the 70-300 IS lens from Canon, but I would like to get closer to the action on the baseball field. Is it worth the money to step up? What would be the difference in distance I can cover?

Personally, I do not think it would be worth addtional $$ for 100-400 when you already have good quality glass with 70-300. If your sole purpose is to get closer to action during baseball games…I would use a 1.4 or 2x Extender/Tc. There are drawbacks including losing an Fstop and problems with AF. Therefore if you are not good with manual focus, this may not be a good otion for you.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
