PETA’s Pitch to Liberate the Lingo of Baseball: Scratch ‘Bullpen’ for ‘Arm Barn’
As the World Series turns into a pitching duel, PETA is pitching a proposal to the baseball world: Strike out the word “bullpen”—which refers to the holding area where terrified bulls are kept before slaughter—in favor of a more modern, animal-friendly term. PETA’s suggestion? The arm barn!
Words matter, and baseball’s “bullpens” devalue talented players and mock the misery of sensitive animals. PETA is encouraging Major League Baseball (MLB) coaches, announcers, players, and fans to changeup their language and embrace “the arm barn” instead.
