 LAS VEGAS (AP) - Even dugouts and bullpens might not need that old landline soon.
Major League Baseball and T-Mobile announced Tuesday 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 landline made headlines during Game 5 of the 2011 World Series when St. Louis manager Tony LaRussa couldn't see into the bullpen and the wrong pitcher entered the game and gave up a go-ahead hit. The Cardinals lost to Texas but bounced back by winning Games 6 and 7 to take the title.
