In brief: Pain

Typically pain when you take a deep breath.
You may also have signs of an upper respiratory tract infection at the same time (cough, runny nose).

In brief: No, and yes.

No, because true pleurisy is an inflammation of the two linings surrounding the lungs (see prior) and sports should't cause this unless, perhaps, there is blunt trauma to the chest wall.
However, the symptons of pleurisy, pain on breathing, could be caused by trauma or contusion of the chest wall or lung. Interestingly, a gas bubble caught under the diaphragm may cause pleuritic symptoms.
