Something coming from left field could relate to field of vision problems. Out in left field usually relates to someone or some party that does “not get it”. They don’t quite know what is happening. However, in baseball parlance good baseball players are generally put in left field because right hand batters normally hit to left field. So sometimes the idioms don’t quite fit their literal use, but are still fun to think about.
