The only challenge you will have with the 60D are AI Servo shots, which is where the 7D has a significant advantage. Your photography at games is going to be a mix of shots, not just action. In that regard, the 60D should be adequate. If it were me, I would give it a try with the 60D. If you find after a while that you simply not getting the shots you want, trade up. Buying a 7D used or refurbished would save you money.
If it matters, I have taken a number of shots at pro baseball games and I find that the really interesting shots are not the action ones. Rather, it is the shots of players goofing around with other players, players thinking about the game, etc., are the ones that I enjoy the most. Basically, it is the experience of the competition rather than just the game play that makes for interesting photos. In that regard, I have gotten awesome shots with both my 60D and 5D Mark II, neither of which is known as an auto-focus powerhouse.
