There already seems to be an entry for that in the very latest git, so I'm presuming someone else already added it in for you.

As in version 2.6.0git4261-g9ebd702a4cf (Mar 12 2022 04:47:50), the gui still asks to choose between Maniac Mansion Deluxe and Maniac Sports (Unknown Variant), and in the status window show the warning about unknown game variant of maniacsports-win.

  {"MANIAC.EXE", 0, "465f972675db2da6040518221af5b0ba", 10409172},

This is for the Maniac Mansion Deluxe 1.4, the last one in my knowledge (The version number can be seen in the end of the html manual) that is installed with the game.

Also i have the ID of the 1.0 version, what is also common found on internet:

Matched game IDs for the director engine: maniacsports-win

  {"MANIAC.EXE", 0, "3128b9f90e2f954ba704414ae854d10b", 9395050},

It should be better to debugging the game in ScummVM to correctly detect and mark each one as 1.4 and 1.0, respectively, as each one could have different issues although the recommended version should be the last one (1.0 hangs in the intro or when hitting ESC with non-english translations, for example, something that doesn't happens in 1.4).

I didn't find other versions yet.
