PETA Suggests MLB Should Rename Bullpen to More Animal-Friendly ‘Arm Barn’

Peta claims the moniker Bull Pen 'mocks the misery of sensitive animals'
(CBS SPORTS) – As perhaps a microcosm of our national condition, this year’s World Series between the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves has been morphed into a referendum on right and wrong on multiple fronts.
The Astros’ very place in the World Series, for one, has become a point of contention after their 2017 championship was forever tainted by a cheating scandal.
The Braves have hardly escaped scrutiny either, as their World Series trip has spawned yet another controversy over Native American chants and imagery in popular culture.
Not to be excluded on either front, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has issued a statement on this year’s World Series, urging Major League Baseball to change the name of the “bullpen,” where pitchers warm-up, to the “arm barn.”
PETA claims “arm barn” is a more animal-friendly term.
