Anyone know where the term "bullpen" came from?

From 1749, when British sheep and cow hearders first started playing the game of baseball. They had their pitchers warm themselves up in the pen of the bulls.. :confused:

I always went with the story that in early professional baseball games pitchers warmed up under the tobacco sign which had a bull on it.
