I don't know how they could look more posed than those... (at least the football samples).... Seriously...
If you're looking for different and baseball - I'd do something like Score baseball cards did in the early 90's - took photos of the players with shades on and the grass / field refelcting in them... or maybe have them pose with wood bats and an old (1900) vintage glove... then do them in a sepia or duotone.
Soccer is a bit tougher - since there isn't a whole lot of equipment - besides the ball... maybe something like what you did with the FB team?
