GeoVerse®063: Out Of Left Field

The West Side Grounds was located here and the residents of the neighboring Neuropsychiatric Institute added the personality to game days because the patients, mostly mentally-challenged individuals, would yell unusual or deranged comments that could easily be heard by the fans and players. Which is why today whenever someone says something unusual or unexpected we say that it “came from out of left field” in reference to the Neuropsychiatric Institute that was located just behind the left field stands of the West Side Grounds.
