Ear pieces...are they banned in baseball?

Postby Y`s Guy » Sun Jun 11, 2006 11:48 am

In football the QB has an ear piece in his helmet to get the next play or two. You'll see his hands cover the holes of his helmet when he needs to hear the call.

In baseball why don't the pitchers have those tiny earpieces so that the managers can call pitches when needed to. They then cut down on visits to the mound, too.

I would not like the equipment as they would dehumanize the game. Pitchers would then become more like automotons.

Are these devices banned?
