Thanks to a partnership between Motorola and Major League Baseball, the dugouts of the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field will be going wireless. Motorola will supply its i580 clamshell cellphone for use in both the home and away dugouts. Now, managers will be able to call up the bullpen without having to get up up from the bench. Motorola will also pay the Cubs to keep them using their cellphone, because, as we all know, Motorola cellphones don't drop calls or anything.

Motorola is looking to install Bluetooth modules everywhere they can inside Wrigley. Imagine Dusty Baker speaking into his trusty wristband. I, for one, can't wait.
