The Arizona Diamondbacks are bringing back an old baseball tradition that fell out of favor in the 1990s. With many fans quite ecstatic about this reboot, the Diamondbacks have officially become the first club to welcome back the ever popular bullpen cart.

Aside from looking so ridiculous that it’s actually awesome, the bullpen cart could even help speed up baseball games, something that has become a hot topic for the league.
