Trevor Hoffman recorded his 599th career save today. Here's a shot of the Brewers bullpen at Miller Park.

If it weren't for the two home plates one would have a hard time recognizing this as the place where some of baseball's "prima donnas" spend most of their time.

Why are they called bullpens?

I looked into that for you. I can't find any specific origin for the term. Apparently, the oldest recorded use of the term was by the Chicago Tribune on October 5, 1924.
