MLB, T-Mobile To Introduce Wireless Dugout-To-Bullpen Phones

Much of a baseball fan?  How do you feel about the wireless age making its way to MLB dugouts and bullpens?

Per CBS New York/AP on January 9th in the article “MLB, T-Mobile To Introduce Wireless Dugout-To-Bullpen Phones“, wire-lines will be replaced with smartphones to make that call to the bullpen.

Major League Baseball and T-Mobile announced  that the cellphone company will provide wireless devices that managers and pitching coaches can use to make the call to get relievers warming up.

The wireless phones will have docking stations in both sets of dugouts and bullpens, but managers and coaches can carry them. The signal shuts off if the phones are taken outside those areas.

The wireless phones will automatically ring when pulled from the docking devices, and a swipe when the phone is being carried will make the call as well. Both sets of dugouts and bullpens will have antennas to transmit the signals.
