Abstract

Since physics isoften a service course for college students, it is important to incorporate everydayexamples in the curriculum that inspire students of diverse backgrounds and interests. Inthis regard, baseball has been a workhorse for the physics classroom for a longtime, taking the form of demonstrations and example problems.
