Maybe a book about men of science and athletics.

Niels Bohr, for example, was on the Danish National soccer team.  His brother, a physicist colleague, while overshadowed by Niels in the laboratory - apparently outshown him on the field, being considered the premier soccer player in Denmark at the time.  

All according to my sources - which I hope I can reconstruct if challenged.

Einstein I suspect, on the other hand, is not someone yuo would want batting clean-up.
