Sports books -recommendations requested please

Hi all. I'm looking for some advice. We're planning a brief tutorial course at my school on sportswriting and we are looking for a list of set texts: So far the list includes:
Richard Ford The Sportswriter
Norman Mailer The Fight
Joyce Carol Oates On Boxing
F.X. Toole Rope Burns

The texts (or films) can be fiction or nonfiction but they must be of a high literary standard. Can anyone recommend their favourite sports books? Suggestions of works in any language and on any sport very gratefully received!

Go back to the satellites and learn how to umpire!
