the opposite is true: a more difficult sport means that the technical education plays a big role which eliminates a lot of talent from the talent pool because of mediocre coaching. who knows how good some soccer players would have been had he had exactly the same technical education that fed received.

the same is true in baseball. it is technically very difficult so a lot of guys "from the hood" will not make it while in football and to some extend basketball the most gifted athletes usually succeed.
Try to find a baseball diamond in the hood. Or find a kid who ever played basball. May be surprised how early some kids start football or basketball when their parents or family members play. 2-3 yo
