it could be

Australian Rules Football

but only if

you mean to put parenthesis around (Rugby League - Polo)
if so, then then using the number of players on a team gives:
Baseball = 9
Cricket = 11
Netball = 7
Basketball = 5
Rugby Union = 15
Rugby League = 13
Polo = 4
making the formula come out to be 18, the number of players on an Aussie Rules Football Team

I think this has to do with

Number of players on a team.

So: (Baseball x Cricket x Netball) - (Basketball x Rugby Union x Rugby League - Polo)

$= (9 \times 11 \times 7) - (5 \times 15 \times 13 - 4) = 693 - 971 = -278$
