Or are laptops actually there, and bench coaches keep them out of sight in the dugout or clubhouse?
As of 2002, when I interned for an MLB organization, "electronic equipment" was forbidden in the dugout, by major league rule.
I imagine that hasn't changed, or we'd have heard about it.
Personally, I think the game would be better if it were allowed. But I also favor the automation of ball/strike calls, and a lot of other uses of technology.
