There are many theories as to the origin of the word “bullpen.” We like Casey Stengel’s version that suggested the term might have been derived from managers getting tired of their relief pitchers “shooting the bull” in the dugout and were therefore sent elsewhere, where they wouldn’t be a bother to the rest of the team -- the bullpen. How serious he was when he made this claim is not clear. Two chairs (20 x 45 x 16”) from the Cardinals bullpen. Red cushioned seat and back rest atop a painted white metal frame. (Estimate $200 - $300)
