For starters you'd be using a lens with no zoom, a slow aperture and no AF - not exactly a good recipe for sports. Then, throw in all the other manual settings such as the tilt and the rotation of the elements, and you end up with a locked into one position on a tripod solution.
It is a misconception that a TS lens increases DoF. It does not. Like any lens, it has a plane of focus, and the depth of what is acceptably in focus is controlled by the aperture (and subject distance). How it differs is you can angle this plane of focus so it is no longer parallel to the sensor. This means that for two dimensional objects such as a peice of paper, even at an angle, with lots of patience, tweaking, experience, and magnified live view, you could potentially get all of it to lie perfectly within the plane of focus. Move the camera a touch, and you'd need to readjust it all to get it back. And to make matters worse, if that was a three dimensional object, everything above or below the piece of paper would be out of focus.
If you really want an approximation of everything in focus in a three dimensional action scene, try either using very small apertures with very high ISO's, or do the equivalent of such by using a small sensor camera like an iPhone.
