Canon 400mm f.5.6 or 300mm f.4 with 1.4III extender SPORTS

I'm going to start shooting a lot of high school and college sports (baseball and soccer mainly, sometimes football) and don't have the budget for an f.2.8 lens.

I have to decide on a 400mm f.5.6 or a 300mm f.4, sometimes adding the x1.4 III extender to the latter.

Most of the time I'll be shooting with daylight but I'll also have some night games, specifically soccer.

What would you recommend in terms of sharpness (very important to me) and focusing accuracy and speed?

I'm shooting with a 1DX.
