Out of left field

Posted by James Briggs on October 23, 2002

I've had another request from North America for something that's a bit beyond my knowledge. I guess the expression has to do with Baseball, but I'd love to know the details. The writer comes from Canada, but his name sounds French - perhaps he's not interested in Baseball! Help again please.
