Well - the first good step you can take is to gather some information
- the kind of think you'd like to publish, then think about what
existing microformats will fit with this data.

Just off the top of my head, you might think about combining hCard and
hReview to describe a player and their abilities (or maybe even
hResume for their sporting careers).  Then you've got hCalendar for
marking up sporting events...

So yeah - using microformats to expose this data is probably very
suitable and there is likely to be a good foundation already in
existance to build something more accurate on to start with.
