Really? I can think of a bunch of series that deal with sports. There are a bunch of ex-athlete investigators, from William Campbell Gault, Steve Hamilton, Robert Irvine, to name a few, even Paul Auster, under the name Paul Benjamin. And some of their cases involve their former sports. Mike Lupica wrote several medium to soft boiled books about a crime investigating TV sports reporter.
