Recommended antenna for backyard

We have a backyard with 2 soccer fields at the school where I work. What antenna would you recommend for say 50 yards or more for coverage? Please and thank you.

What AP's are you using? for our big outdoor areas I have lately been using the MR84 with the Dual-Band Omni (MA-ANT-20)

@kYutobi one thing to keep in mind is how many clients do you anticipate on connecting. If you think you are going to have large number of people you will likely have to have multiple AP's and load balance with a concentrator for best performance... at that point you don't need a crazy AP just will dispersed and placed AP's
