  Abstract: The sports world provides an unlimited number of introductory physics examples. I will use a few of those examples to illustrate how an introductory physics teacher (high school or college/university) can use sports to not only teach physics but to help motivate students. Students in need of a little push may find connections to sports a way to make physics more "real world" than traditional examples.
