What would be the proper Schema.org type for marking up ordered lists?

For instance, statistical rankings for sports player.

0

You could use Schema.org’s ItemList for the list.

In case of "statistical rankings for sports player": If you list the statistics of several players, each entry should be a separate item. You could use Person.

Example in Microdata:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ItemList">
<meta itemprop="itemListOrder" content="Descending" />
<ol>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
</ol>
</div>

Note that a sports vocabulary was proposed recently, which

includes support for describing sports statistics

So maybe there will be some more appropriate classes.
