Now shoot mostly in Manual, f4.0, 1/3200 and Auto ISO with +1/3 to 2/3 EV which I can do on 1DX. The main reason for this is that our diamonds get home plate in shadow pretty early in evening while second base is still in nice sunlight....makes it easy when quickly shooting one area and then the next to not to have to switch settings.
Some will worry about noise and such at higher ISO settings when they happen but for me with the 1DX and 1D Mk IV (my main two sports bodies) this is not an issue.
I do this shooting baseball with a 7DII. You can adjust the EC on the 7DII, also, while in manual and auto-ISO and I usually shoot with it at +1/3.
