Squats are the best exercise for overall leg and glute conditioning and strength. They also develop core balance and strengthen the lower back - advisable in sports activities. Standing with feet hip-width apart, bend at the knee and lower hips to the floor, going no lower than 90 degrees.

The best leg exercises are free weight squats and deadlifts. Deadlifts have the added bonus of also targeting your upper back and core muscles, which are also important in baseball. These two exercises will make you faster, stronger, and help you last longer in the field. Additional leg exercises aren't really needed if you hit these two hard enough.
