Day game or night game? I'll assume day. If this isn't going to be a regular event for you, don't rush to buy equipment.

As already mentioned it's important to check stadium rules. Many have poorly-worded rules that only allow "small" or that ban "professional" cameras. Guards at different entrances interpret the rules differently.

Your K-3 or K-1 with 55-300 should be adequate. No need to upgrade to the newer 55-300 PLM for fast autofocus. You'll be far enough back that AF will only need to move through a small range, infinity through almost-infinity. Pre-focus and then switch to manual focus if you are worried about focus hunting on each shot. Even better, this is a good time to consider configuring your camera to use the rear AF button!

55mm is fairly long. Bring a 2nd lens or just use a cell phone for wider shots.
