I would appreciate evaluation and suggestions for improvement.

IMHO, (1) over-exposed...lower your f-stop to about 5.6; (2) get rid of the angle - catcher and batter need to be on a level playing field; and (3) on shot #2, zoom out just a tad...you want room to the right for the ball to travel if he hits it!

I agree that your horizons need to be leveled. You want as much background blur as possible, so I suggest that you shoot wide open. A larger dof from a smaller aperture = more distractions from the background. WRT exposure, if you have not burned out your highlights, you can tweak it in post if you want. Frankly, some minor burnout of white uniforms doesn't bother me. I'm more concerned about skin tones. On days like this with hard shadows, try to open up the shadows and reduce the highlights in post.
And after a bit of tweaking in lightroom. I've opened the shadows and reduced the highlights. The exposure was also boosted by 1/2 stop. The shadows on the face are still clearly evident but are far less objectionable.

A few thoughts:
I know I am late to the this, and I am certainly no professional.. But, here are my 2 cents.

This shows staying on the batter just after the hit making for a better photo as was mentioned by Noitca. I was a little too tight on the line and cropped too tight. If you can move around the field, you can create more photographic opportunities throughout the game. Not every field lends to this but when it does you can have fun with it.
