Internet Help! Help me put my baseball teams games on the air! Answered

Hi, This year my high school baseball team coach asked me to help televise the games for the local channel. He said that we have cameras and the only thing we need to broadcast the games live is the internet. The baseball diamond is around 200 yards away from the main school. There is no internet over there. So here are my options. (A) Put up a directional wifi antenna on the roof of the school, (B) Use a cell phone internet conection, (C) Set up a powerline network. Here is the problem with (A)- I don't know where to purchase a cheap antenna (less than $100) and a cable to the roof/ The Problem with (B) is that it would be very expensive and I don't think the internet would be fast enough. The Problem with (C) is that even if I were to set up a powerline network in the school the power out at the diamond is on a different breaker so it would not work. Do you have any suggestions for my problem? Where to get a cheap directional antennas? Thanks Joe

IDK, I don't think I could get the signal that far using a home built one unless it large. I wonder how hard it would be to aim? Thanks anyway though. Gives something to work with.
